Student Course Assessment

Student Course Assessment is often conducted with the help of each college’s Office of Assessment. Some colleges have standardized Student Evaluations of Online Courses, as well as observation forms for faculty. When designing any kind of evaluation forms for student use, be careful to distinguish between the evaluation of the course design and the delivery of the course by the professor in a hybrid format.

Assessing the Impact of Hybrid learning

There are great advantages and benefits to hybrid/blended online learning. Empirical studies suggest that hybrid courses result in similar or better learning outcomes in comparison to face-to-face courses. Depending on the questions on the forms, student course assessment can help answer the following:

1. How does the effectiveness of online learning compare with that of face-to-face instruction?

2. Does supplementing face-to-face instruction with online instruction enhance learning?

3. What practices are associated with more effective online learning?

4. What conditions influence the effectiveness of online learning?
