Overview
  • Overview of IDEA Data
  • Not other college assessments like AACP surveys,
    experiential results, dashboards, etc.
  • Assessing college-wide teaching goal
  • Curricular Review uses
  • Scholarship highlights
  • QA

Drake Background
  • IDEA System
  • Course evaluation system Heavily researched
  • Used by 7 SOP/COP 320 institutions
  • Measures progress against faculty objectives
  • IDEA at Drake
  • Since 2004
  • Paper and on-line (35-40 courses/semester)

4
IDEA Background
  • Students' feedback on their own learning
    progress, effort, and motivation,
  • Student perceptions of the instructor's use
    of teaching methods and strategies.
  • Rather than teaching style or personality, IDEA
    focuses on student learning and the methods used
    to facilitate it.

5
I. Teaching Goal
  • Great Universities measure what they value
    (anonymous)
  • This is one piece of teaching review

Action Faculty Development
