  3. 3. Paper Course EvaluationsPros ConsDone in-class - good response rates Very time consuming (preparation before and after administration)Students feel anonymous May take 4-12 weeks for faculty to get results Resource intensive to type up answers to open ended questions Lots of room for error (scanning errors, student errors-using pen, etc., illegible comments, handling errors: students can tamper with data or forget to return, people often put forms in a packet for the wrong class, etc) Students may be apathetic and just fill in anything Costly (cost of forms, pencils, bins, envelopes, work hours, scanner) Bad for the environment (uses lots of paper) Students may not take time on open ended questions because of time
  4. 4. Online Course EvaluationsPros ConsImmediate results Lower response rate? (effects of use of incentives?)Far less room for error (no lost forms, Has to be done on the students’ timescanning issues) (unless technology allows for in-class)Far less time consuming Anonymity concernsFar less costly (no scanner, paper forms, Students who have not attended class aremuch less work hours,etc.) now able to give opinionsGreen- no need for paperMore student commentsFlexibility for questions/scalesStudents who take the time to do themhave an opinionStudents are able to fill them out 24 hoursa dayLess time intensive for administrators
