We listen.

Last year, we read 7,600 course evaluations completed by Marylhurst students.

Most student respondents were satisfied with their courses and instruction, and they reported a slightly higher level of satisfaction compared to the prior academic year.

The majority – 91 percent – said Marylhurst instructors are available and responsive to questions or concerns, and are well prepared.

Course Evaluation Results Chart AY 2012

After evaluating the data, we are making a number of improvements, including:

  • Changes to courses and teaching strategies, such as decreasing the number of online discussions, changing textbooks, clarifying assignments, and devoting more in-class time to experiential learning

  • Identifying support and mentoring opportunities for instructors to further their professional development

  • Changes in course offerings and schedules

Course evaluations are one source of information about student experience that help us identify strengths and make improvements to courses and/or instruction. Course evaluations are voluntary and anonymous.
