Teaching Evaluation

The study program evaluation is the first pillar in the Evaluation of Studies & instructor in the Quality Assurance Concept of the faculty. The focus is on the study program concept, the studyability, and the internationality of the study programs. The core of the study program evaluation lies in the student surveys.

Student Surveys

Since 2005, the Faculty for Social Sciences and Philosophy regularly conducts student surveys. The surveys serve as a comprehensive way to evaluate the curricula and the study conditions. On the one hand, with their help, problematic developments should be recognized at an early stage. On the other hand, the surveys should convey information regarding study motifs and processes on the basis of which the design and development of the range of studies can purposefully take place.

The teaching evaluation represents two pillars of the survey-based Evaluation of Teaching & Studies and is made up of the:

In addition to the evaluation of study programs (first pillar), the teaching evaluation also serves to improve study conditions and focuses especially on the the content-related, organizational and didactic design of the range of studies.

The teaching evaluation is anchored in the university state law (§9 section 2 of the SächsHSFG). The concrete arrangement resides with faculties, although the university-wide evaluation guidelines must be followed.

The Faculty for Social Sciences and Philosophy follows a development-oriented focus also in the area of teaching evaluation: evaluations give, above all, information and are instigators for design and adjustment decisions which are basically made subsidiarily. Further, there is a need for a reliable protection of trust which is especially valid for the course evaluation level.

Evaluations are especially useful as instruments for development, however, they are also elaborate and only then meaningful if they follow methodical standards. Because of this, the faculty offers a support and consulting service for the teaching evaluation area, which relieves instructors in the conception, organization, implementation, and the results preparation of the evaluations and, at the same time, makes it so the process takes place according to methodical standards.

Course Evaluation

The course evaluation aims to have teaching develop well. It is a feedback instrument for instructors and takes, above all else, content-related, didactic, and organizational aspects into consideration in order to make well thought-out decisions regarding adjustment with the help of gained insight.

The evaluation program of the Faculty for Social Sciences and Philosophy follows a subsidiary, development-oriented approach. The course evaluation is designed to be a closed, non-public evaluation program. It should give instructors feedback regarding the teaching aspects mentioned above and gives information regarding possibly useful adjustments. The assessment of the results as well as decisions about adjustment are done independently by the instructors (protection of trust). If there is any ambiguity, and in case of uncertainty, problems can be informally discussed amongst colleagues and experience can be exchanged.

For the conception and implementation of the course evaluation, instructors can receive consultation and support from the evaluation mentors in the faculty’s study office. This offer has expanded step-by-step since the summer semester of 2016 and contains, next to consultation, subject-specific, methodical-consolidated model instruments (questionnaires) as well as the organizational support with their implementation (for this, see support for course evaluation).

Supported course evaluation

In 2016, an offer of support for the evaluation of courses began to be established by the Faculty for Social Sciences and Philosophy. The goal of this is to not only advise instructors methodically regarding the evaluation of their courses, but also support them during the implementation and analysis. The effort for the course evaluation should be kept at the minimum for the instructors and should be secured as a standard based on evaluation methodology.

The support course evaluation is available to all instructors and coursers of all the faculty’s institutes.

The support offer concentrates on the survey-based evaluation of courses with the number of participants from eight up to a few hundred students. For every of the participating institutes, a subject-specific, standardized questionnaire for courses, seminars and tutorials is available. It will solely be an online survey. A choice can be made between two different survey dates (the middle or end of the semester).

The instructors will receive a results overview (EXAMPLE) soon after the end of the survey, in which the feedback from the course participants will be systematically summarized.

In order to register for a course evaluation, please fill out the online registration form.

Please be aware of the necessary time to prepare for the evaluations: online evaluations must be registered for at the latest 14 days before the desired evaluation date.

Please be understanding that we can only conduct a maximum of two course evaluations per instructor in order to restrict the number of evaluations for students and to avoid overlap. Starting in the summer semester of 2022, the evaluation will only take place online. Paper surveys are no longer available until further notice.

Please be aware of the new registration deadline of 14 days until the implementation of the evaluation.

After the registration, you will receive an automatically generated confirmation email from us which will contain the data given in the registration form. You will receive a further email with details regarding the order of events at the latest three days before the planned evaluation date.

Online Survey

For the online survey, the entire course of events will be organized by the study office. We will create the online questionnaire and will invite the students to participate in the survey at the planned time. The email address needed from the participants will be retrieved from the current status on AlmaWeb. After the online survey has begun, the participants will have one week’s time to complete the questionnaire.

Results of the Evaluation

After the conclusion of the online survey, you will receive the results of your evaluation via email in the form of a clearly-arranged summary, usually within a few days. With the summary, you will also be sent a certificate about the evaluation with the method and date of the evaluation without mention of the content-related results.

The results of the course evaluation will only be sent to the respective instructor personally. The faculty’s evaluation concept recommends that the results should be discussed with the students during the course; however, the decision here lies with each instructor individually. Similarly, the instructors themselves decide if and for what purpose the results of the course evaluation will be given to third parties.

The concept of course evaluation at the Faculty for Social Sciences and Philosophy provides a robust protection of trust for the instructors and respects the data as well as personality rights of all involved. In this way, for the routine course evaluations, the following principles apply:

  • Results from the course evaluation are inherently the sole property of the respective instructors.
  • Results from course evaluations which have been ascertained in the context of a faculty-wide offer of support will only be given out to the respective instructors.
  • For the release of results from course evaluations as well as their being forwarded to third parties (such as the participants of the course evaluations) must be inherently approved of by the respective instructors.
  • Regarding data and personality rights of the evaluation participants and in case of the release and/or transfer as well as inspection through third parties, all individual (not standardized) statements must be removed from the results overview. This also pertains to a release to the participants of the respective course. In justified cases, the individual statements can be paraphrased, categorized, or edited before the release or transfer of results so that conclusions drawn about concrete persons is no longer possible.

Starting in the Summer Semester of 2022, the course evaluations can only take place in the form of online surveys (via web browser). Because in-person courses can take place in the Summer Semester of 2022 with or without parts of it being digital, the special questionnaire will only be offered for evaluation unter further notice.

The supported course evaluation ensues with the help of a standardized questionnaire, which comes in the form of an online questionnaire.

 

Special questionnaire 2022

Even if many courses take place in the typical form, there are still digital teaching/learning formats. Because of this, an adjusted questionnaire will be offered in the Summer Semester 2022 due to the special situation. As usual, one questionnaire per type of course (course, seminar, tutorial) will be available. However, only the usual core questionnaire is used, which has been expanded to include additional items/questions on digital forms of teaching/learning. Institute-specific, additional items as well as questions regarding the respective module (with an exception of time overlap within a module) will be abstained from due to space reasons.

 

Standard questionnaire

In the Winter Semester 2019/20, the example questionnaires were lightly edited in order for adjustment to the formal requirements of the evaluation regulations and the new Quality Assurance Program of the faculty. There are further institute-specific questionnaires for courses, seminars, and tutorials. These are based on the faculty-uniform core questionnaire, which contains up to another three subject/institute-specific items.

The updated questionnaire now contains some items that pertain to the module in which the course takes place. Through this, the separately implemented module surveys can be abstained from without having to give up on the module evaluations completely. The information on the respective module is separated and brought together without the information on the course and, if necessary, made available to the person responsible for the module. The instructors will also see the statements regarding the respective module in their individual reports for the course evaluation. These serve only for information.

Please be understanding that larger ad hoc changes cannot be made to the respective questionnaires. We are happy to hear your wishes and receive feedback and will consider this in the further development of the respective questionnaires in upcoming semesters.

 

Example analyses

Glossary

Arithmetic Mean | The A.M. is a mean (loading guage) and is often used to represent the average of all values recorded for an item. According to the usual definition, it is calculated by summing up all observed values and then dividing by the number of values. The advantages of the A.M. lie in its widespread use - when talking about the mean, it is usually the A.M. meant. Its disadvantages result from the fact that all the values collected are included in the result to the same extent. Values that deviate greatly from the usual answers (outlier values), especially in the case of small samples - such as those available in the evaluation at the level of the study subjects - can significantly distort the result. In the evaluation of the student survey, the A.M. is therefore only shown in some cases and is then always next to a position measure that is more robust to outlier values (see median).

Participation Rate (response, response rate) | In principle, all evaluation surveys at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Philosophy are designed as full surveys. In theory, all students of a degree program, a course or a module should/can take part in the survey. In practice, however, only some of the students do this for various reasons (interest of the students, low attendance in evaluated courses). A participation rate (in percent) is therefore calculated for each survey as part of the faculty's evaluation program and given in the evaluation of the results. Together with the sample size, the participation rate is an important criterion for the generalizability of the respective results. A participation rate of ≥10% with a simultaneous sample size of n ≥10 can be assumed to be sufficient for the meaningfulness of evaluation results. When evaluating courses with small group sizes (<25), an n <10 can still be sufficient. According to the experiences in the evaluation program of the faculty, the usual participation rates are:

  • Student surveys: online 35-45%
  • Module evaluation: online 20-30% | paper & pencil: 50-60%
  • Course evaluation: online 15-25% | paper & pencil: 40-50%

Frequency Distribution | See also frequency distribution, multipeak | For each value specified/specifiable in a question, the H. indicates how often this value occurs in the answers. The H. can be stated absolutely (number of mentions per value) or relative (ratio of mentions per value to the number of all mentions). In the result evaluations, the H. is always given in relative terms, as a percentage, since the meaning of a H. cannot usually be meaningfully interpreted on the basis of absolute numbers. When considering relative H., however, the number of answers (n=) included in the respective question must always be taken into account. On the one hand, because with a low n, individual mentions can appear as high proportions. On the other hand, because the relative frequencies of questions whose n differs greatly from that of the total sample cannot be interpreted in relation to the total sample. It should be noted that the relative H. of the responses to a question does not necessarily add up to 100 percent (+/- minor deviations due to rounding). For questions that allow multiple answer choices, the sum of the relative frequencies can go well over 100. However, these items are marked separately in the analysis of results (see multiple mentions).

Frequency distribution, multipeak | See also Frequency Distribution| Frequency Distributions, especially for questions with ordinal agreement scales (true...not true), should ideally show a normal (Gaussian) distribution. In evaluation practice, however, this is rarely the case. The frequency distribution of such a question/scale usually shows its peak skewed to the right or left - the majority of the answers are therefore on the positive or negative answer levels of the scale. In addition, the frequency distribution can even have several peaks - e.g. one at the beginning and one at the end of the scale. Such a multi-peak distribution can be interpreted in such a way that there are several groups among the survey participants with regard to one and the same question (in the example there are two), whose assessments differ significantly in each case. In such a case, it would be worth considering which factor might have led to the diverging judgments.

Categorization, subsequent | Questions marked with this annotation were asked in open form. The students were able to formulate free answers to these questions using a text field. In many cases, a categorization is carried out in order to be able to evaluate the answers in a systematic and anonymous form. For this purpose, the free answers are assigned to previously defined categories. To determine the categories, tried and tested categorial sets were used in part. For some of the open questions, however, the categories were also determined on the basis of a previous sighting or typification of the free answers. The evaluation of the open questions in the module evaluation represents a special case: the answers are not assigned to standardized categories but are individually paraphrased (the factual meaning of the mentions is given in an abbreviated form). Only those mentions are processed that are relevant in the context of the module design.

Median (central value) | The M. is similar to the arithmetic mean, a mean (loading guage). It shows the central tendency of all values ​​collected for an item. The M. is defined as the boundary between the two halves (upper and lower 50 percent) of a size-ordered data bundle. Put more simply, the M. is the value above and below which half of all data values ​​lie. The advantage of the median compared to other load gauges is that it is more robust to values ​​that deviate significantly from the usual answers (outlier values), especially in the case of small samples - such as those available for evaluation at the level of the individual degree programs, courses or modules. In the result evaluations of the student surveys and teaching evaluations, the M. is always shown when the "mean value" is given. In some cases, the arithmetic mean is also given.

Multiple entry | The comment "Multiple answers possible" or "Multiple answers possible" refers to questions in which several of the given answer options could be ticked or in the case of open questions several free answers could be given.

n - sample size, number of responses included | n= stands for the size/scope of the respective sample. It is to be distinguished from the large N=, which indicates the size of the population. In the evaluations of the student surveys as well as the module and course evaluation, n indicates the respective number of usable (valid) answers that could be included for the evaluation of the respective question. Due to the filters used in the questionnaire and the partly selective response behavior of the survey participants, the n between the individual questions sometimes fluctuates considerably. Cases where the respective n is less than ten are marked with a “!” in the result graphs. In the evaluations of the module and course evaluation, the number of abstentions is also given for each question/item with E=

Open Query | See categorization, subsequent

Standard deviation – s | The S. is a measure of dispersion. To put it simply, it shows how much the recorded values of an item deviate from the mean (arithmetic mean) on average. In the evaluation of the student survey, the S. is only shown in the results of the questions that were asked with the help of multi-level assessment scales. (There partly also graphically as a range.) A high S. indicates that the answers of the students are widely scattered over the available answer options.

Module evaluations

Since the introduction of bachelor and master study programs, individual courses are condensed into modules. This should allow students to deliberately study certain topics/branches which are connected time-wise. This only works when the partial courses of the module are coherent content-wise and are sensibly connected. With the module evaluation, the coherence of the content of the courses as well as their connection in the context of the module will be evaluated.

The module evaluation is an important instrument for the development of the courses offered, but as such it also involves a lot of effort. Even though the instructors are the relevant agents for the assessment and adjustment of what the module has to offer, they should be relieved of some of the organizational effort. The faculty offers support and consulting service with which methodical standards can be secured, as well as relief during the process.

Until the Winter Semester 2018/19, the module evaluation occurred through separate evaluation surveys in the respective courses. The effort here is significant, the instructors must make time during their courses for the survey, and the students have to fill out more evaluation forms per semester. Further, this showed that the routine module evaluation only had to retrieve certain, few characteristics. For this reason, after a one-year test phase, we transferred to integrated course and module evaluations.

Since the Winter Semester 2019/20, the information for module evaluations is retrieved in the context of a course evaluation. The questionnaires contain many items which pertain to the respective module that the course belongs to. This way, the module surveys that had been implemented up until this time could be abstained from without giving up on the module evaluation entirely. The information on the respective module is separated and brought together without the information on the course and, if necessary, made available to the courser responsible for the module. The instructors of the respective courses will receive the information regarding the module in their individual evaluation report. Extensive module evaluations can be further implemented based on the occasion (new establishment, problematic situation).

Listed here are only the modules which were evaluated in the context of the faculty’s module evaluation program.
