Until a year ago, students were handed a print version of the questionnaire and given some time during class to fill them in, usually in the last few classes of the semester. Recently, AUIS adopted a digital method and switched from print to online questionnaires, which is proven to have many advantages, such as convenience for respondents. Students can now fill the course evaluations at their convenience, any time, anywhere, using any device, and spending as much time as they would like to. The student response rates, however, have dropped dramatically since then! In an attempt to improve the students’ response rates on the course evaluations, this project was started.
This project is an initiative of CIDA Founding Director, Dr. Hemin Latif. For more information on the project, check out this blog post.
