This week’s “how to” article highlights one of the four Questionmark Analytics reports specific to course evaluation, now available in Questionmark OnDemand.
Last week we examined the “Course Summary Report,” which provides summary data and analysis of results across multiple courses and instructors.  This week, we’ll look at the “Class Summary” report, which drills down into results for a specific class and instructor:

  • What it does: Compares course evaluation feedback for a single instructor for a single course.
  • Who should use it: This report is ideal for managers and learning/education/training professionals who need to gauge the reactions of participants in specific class, as well as for instructors looking for direct feedback to improve future learning experience.
  • How it looks: A dynamically generated table represents summary survey scores for all topics for each participant. The averages are ranked and color coded from lowest to highest score. Each participant in the course evaluation survey for the instructor is identified as “Anonymous.” The report has three components:
    • Summary Table of Statistics: provides detailed information regarding the Course Evaluation results obtained for each of the participants in a course for an instructor as well as summary information for all participants in a course for an instructor.
    • All Topics Summary Graph, which plots the average ratings across all topics in the survey for all participants combined. The report also provides average results for each individual participant.
    • Topic Breakdown Graph, which plots the average ratings for each topic in the survey for all participants combined, and provides the same topic-breakdown analysis for each individual participant.
