Welcome to the E-Framework Services for Course Evaluation Project WebsiteThis project will produce an E-Framework (EF) toolkit that enables users to create applications that provide and consume services for course evaluation. While 'Course Evaluation' is not defined within the EF as such, there are related learning domain services, such as 'Quality Assurance'. Within UK Higher and Further Education, course evaluation is a well-defined component of teaching and learning, and after the domains of 'Learning Design' and of 'Assessment' is probably the next most important. It is therefore valuable to have well articulated service descriptions and toolkit services for this domain.
The toolkit services will focus upon the authoring of evaluation questionnaires, their use by students, and the authoring of course reports by tutors based upon questionnaire answers. The central service allows a tutor to construct an evaluation report, commonly an end-of-course report, based upon the student evaluations selected from a repository. Amongst the supporting services are the construction of the evaluation items, the construction of the questionnaire template for student completion, the construction of the report template for tutor completion, and the analysis service which will provide the histograms and statistics commonly derived from completed evaluation questionnaires.
