RE: 503, WA4, Fournier

The purpose of EVOC 503 WA4 was to prepare a Post Course Survey instrument for the course I instruct in Automotive Engine Performance. The following six criteria were specified:

  1. Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.
  2. Develop a "Post Course Survey" instrument for a particular course. The survey should not be more than 1 page (typewritten or word processed).
  3. The survey should be designed so that students are required to rate statements made about the course and actually write clarifying and/or additional information.
  4. Include at least seven statements that students can rate on a five point scale with ratings such as "strongly agree, agree, undecided, disagree, strongly disagree."
  5. Avoid statements that include overly strong, overly general or inappropriate language (such as "this is the best course I've ever had" or "this course really sucked").
  6. Include a designated space at the bottom of the form for "Additional Comments."

The following sources of information were used relative to this assignment:

  1. Fournier, Phil - From my own professional experience.
  2. http://www.questionpro.com/userimages/4/77.pdf (this file is available in several formats and gives good ideas on appropriate questions for a post-course survey.)

I believe that the attached proposal meets all six of above listed criteria and respectfully request full credit: one point for meeting each of the above listed criteria.
