The Office of University Effectiveness is responsible for processing online course evaluations. West Liberty Faculty Senate revised Policy No. 215, and the evaluation core questions to accommodate the transition to an online delivery method, and these changes were officially approved by Faculty Senate on February 17, 2015.
This online delivery system provides improved reporting capabilities for faculty and administration. EvaluationKIT is fully integrated with West Liberty’s online learning management system, Sakai, therefore, faculty and students are able to access course evaluations directly through Sakai. EvaluationKIT provides faculty with the option to customize their courses by adding additional course specific questions for any/all of their classes. Additional distance education questions are included for all online course evaluations, and the Learning and Student Development Center includes a set of questions for all sections of Freshman Experience.
Students and faculty receive email notification when the survey collection begins, and periodic reminders before the evaluation period (one to two weeks) ends. Surveys can be completed with a smart phone, laptop, computer or similar device. EvaluationKIT results are completely anonymous, and faculty receive report results only after grades are submitted.
