small group instructional diagnosis

A consultant from CTE will visit a class for 50-75 minutes and, without the instructor
being present, ask the students three questions about the class: 1) what has helped
them learn, 2) what has made learning difficult, and 3) what suggestions do they have
for change. Small groups of students discuss and answer these questions. The
consultant meets with the instructor and passes on this information.

mid-semester evaluation for online courses

For our online course mid-semester evaluations, CTE will provide a master copy of
comment forms (with the above three Small Group questions) which will be emailed as
a Google form individually to your students. Students will then anonymously answer
questions on what is going well with the course of what may need clarification or
improvement. The instructor will then schedule a 15 minute wiki-consultation with a
CTE consultant either face-to-face or using Skype or Blackboard Collaborate to review
and discuss the results.
