Abstract

To enhance quality, faculty and student satisfaction, and learning outcomes, an academic working group comprising University of Florida faculty members proposed a project to develop a valid, reliable course evaluation tool for distance education courses and programs. Components of the project included institutional benchmarking, stakeholder input, instrument development, and instrument testing. The project resulted in a course evaluation tool that is more reflective of the actual course experience than what was previously being used. The chapter concludes with a brief list of recommendations and lessons learned from the project.
