FLIT 150: COURSE ASSESSMENT
The purpose of assessment is NOT to review the professor or to do a 'course evaluation'. Those tasks are carried out by other means at other times (the 'Course Evaluation'). The purpose of this effort is to find out how well each student learned, in other words, how well you achieved the goals
of the course. In assessment, we are interested in:
- the various tools we used to learn: did they work? how well did each work?
- the various methods we used in handling the tools: did they work? how well?
- what can be done to improve the learning process?
Using the email system, please write the professor a note
(Put the words FLIT 150 ASSESS in your subject line), answering each of the following questions as best you can. This is NOT an optional assignment. An email answer is expected from each and every person registered in the course.
- 1. What is your academic level? (Fresh / Soph / Jun / Sen / Grad / ExtLearning / Other)?
- 2. What is your major? What is your minor (if you have one)?
- 3. Why did you take this course? (Major requirement / Minor requirement / GE choice / Other) Please explain the circumstances.
- 4. Methodology: Did you find the lectures and readings from Gochberg useful and interesting?
- 5 .Did you find the various pages of handouts and lecture notes on the Web Site useful? Are there things which should be added in this category? Things changed?

- Did you think that the internet pages ("Handouts") helped you in a significant way to learn the course material?
- Would you prefer more, fewer, or the same number of internet pages? Which authors most need additional helps?
- 7. Do you think that some lectures should be replaced by on-line Internet assignments? If so, what kind of assignments would you want or expect?
