We have implemented online faculty evaluations for all classes, but the response rate has been disappointing.  Our deans and provost want to allow early access to grades for students who have submitted evaluations, thinking that might improve the response rate.  If you are a Banner school that has connected access to grades with submission of online evaluations, could you describe what you did?  We are interested in both the technology and policy around this issue.  

 

You could respond to Jim O'Connor, Director of New School Online, at james.oconnor@newschool.edu.

 

Thanks so much.

You may also try giving them free print for submitting complete evaluations as this increased our response rate. Note we have a Print Management System at the college as part of our Go Green sustainability initiative.

    Naveed,
     
    I think that you hit the nail right on the head.
     
    Anybody who creates and analyzes surveys often knows that if you want good response rates there has to be something "in it" for the respondents.
     
    In some (rare) cases, the motivation may be as simple as people wanting to help to improve the process or service that they are consuming.
     
    Usually (and unfortunately) this is not the case, and you need a bigger/better motivation.
     
    If you were a software vendor you would encourage people to complete a survey by entering them in a raffle to win something (like an iPad)
    or
    by sending them a chotschke (sorry my Yiddish is rusty) like a 2 GB or 4 GB USB Flash drive.
     
    But they have more discretionary (marketing) funds than we do.
     
    So, in our case offering (some) free print services is an excellent idea.
     
    Be the ball, I mean the student.
    Get in their heads.
     
    What can you offer them
    that they want
    that you can afford?
     
    This is the item/service with which you can bait your survey hook.
     
    Good luck!
     
    Christian
