Student Evaluation of Instruction Survey Successful

Results of the Fall 2010 Evaluation of Instruction Surveys indicate overall student approval of the quality of instruction at Northeast Alabama Community College. This evaluation process provides students the opportunity to rate various aspects of the instructional process for both traditional and online instruction, thus enabling college personnel to identify areas of effectiveness as well as those that may merit improvement.

More than 1,800 students, 53% of the fall enrollment, participated in the survey, in which they were asked to rate the instruction for each course in which they were enrolled. The Evaluation of Instruction Summary Reports for the fall semester, along with those of the three preceding fall terms, are available online.

Sophomore Kristina Patrick, a criminal justice major from Skyline, was the lucky winner of a Kindle wireless reading device, awarded by the Office of Institutional Planning and Assessment (OIPA) as an incentive for student participation.

OIPA surveys coming this spring include surveys of student satisfaction with course scheduling and with NACC facilities and services.
