This term starts the phasing in of IZUNA’s new online system for the FSA instructional assessment online (IAO) for student evaluation.
The system has been soft launched by selected FSA faculty members and students and is now being implemented in phases across the institution.
The new system reflects the findings of a research review, a survey of practices at other institutions, and input received from faculty, staff and students during a campus-wide consultation process in 2015 and 2016. We believe it will provide you with a valuable new toolkit for understanding and improving student learning.
The new survey instrument was designed and approved by your peers, a Performance Development System (PDS) steering committee, and the PDS network group to:
- Improve the standardized questions
- Reduce the number of questions
- Create a “customizable” feature for instructors to add 7 questions from a question bank
There are 13 core questions on every survey sent online and instructors can insert up to 7 more from an extensive question bank.
