MATH200/ME58 Debriefing Responses

THANK YOU for filling out the debriefing form and helping to make the next class better. Here are the responses. Out of 9 students who finished the course, 8 completed the evaluations. Some of you left some questions blank, so the N is not the same for all questions.

On the agree/disagree questions, SA=strongly agree, A=agree, N=neutral, D=disagree, and SD=strongly disagree. The free responses to the last few questions are not in any particular order. In the interests of transparency, if anything at all was written for those questions, even a punctuation mark or “no comments”, I copied it to this Web page.

  1. I liked how email was used in this course.
    Responses (N=9):   SA=4   A=2   N=3   D=0   SD=0
  2. I liked how the Web was used in this course.
    Responses (N=9):   SA=6   A=3   N=0   D=0   SD=0
  3. In a typical week, I visited the course Web page this many times:
    Responses (N=9): 2, 4, 4, 4, 6, 8+, “8 or more”, “10 or more”, 15+; median = 6
  4. I checked solutions to quizzes on the Web this often:
    Responses (N=9):   always=5   usually=1   sometimes=2   seldom=0   never=1
  5. The textbook was at least as useful as other math books I’ve studied.
    Responses (N=9):   SA=6   A=2   N=1   D=0   SD=0
  6. I printed the chapters (as opposed to reading them on screen) this often:
    Responses (N=9):   always=3   usually=1   sometimes=1   seldom=1   never=3
  7. I read this much of the text, not counting the BTWs:
    Responses (N=9):   ≥90%=3   75%=4   50%=1   25%=0   ≤10%=1
  8. I read the BTWs this often:
    Responses (N=8):   always=1   usually=2   sometimes=3   seldom=0   never=2
  9. I’d be willing to pay this much for a preprinted loose-leaf copy of the text:
    Responses (N=7): $70, 50, 30, 30, 25, 20/30, “?”; median = $30
  10. I read this much of the Course Outline:
    Responses (N=8):   ≥90%=7   75%=0   50%=1   25%=0   ≤10%=0
  11. Graded papers were returned promptly.
    Responses (N=8):   SA=7   A=1   N=0   D=0   SD=0
  12. The instructor’s written comments on returned papers were helpful.
    Responses (N=8):   SA=6   A=2   N=0   D=0   SD=0
  13. Of the homework problems, I worked:
    Responses (N=8):   ≥90%=5   75%=3   50%=0   25%=0   ≤10%=0
  14. In a typical week (not exam week), I spent this many hours on course work outside of class:
    Responses (N=9): 1, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 15+, 15+, 20+; median = 5
  15. I feel I put in enough effort to meet my goals for the course.
    Responses (N=9):   SA=5   A=3   N=1   D=0   SD=0
  16. I tracked my grades on the Excel sheet or paper calculator.
    Responses (N=9):   SA=4   A=0   N=3   D=1   SD=1
  17. My grades have reflected my level of mastery of statistics (not necessarily my degree of effort).
    Responses (N=9):   SA=3   A=3   N=1   D=1   SD=1
    The “SD” responder commented, “only bc I was very unmotivated at beginning”.
  18. When I asked for help from the Baker Center, I got what I needed. (Circle NA if you didn’t go.)
    Responses (N=9): NA=6, SA=1, A=1, N=0, D=1, SD=0
  19. When I asked for help from the instructor, I got what I needed. (Circle NA if you didn’t ask.)
    Responses (N=9): NA=1, SA=6, A=2, N=0, D=0, SD=0
  20. It was clear what was expected of me.
    Responses (N=9):   SA=4   A=4   N=1   D=0   SD=0
  21. The chance to opt out of the final exam motivated me to study more.
    Responses (N=9):   SA=4   A=3   N=1   D=1   SD=0
  22. In terms of my learning, the M&Ms Lab was worth the time spent.
    Responses (N=8):   SA=4   A=3   N=0   D=0   SD=1
  23. In terms of my learning, the ESP Lab was worth the time spent.
    Responses (N=9):   SA=5   A=3   N=1   D=0   SD=0
  24. I wish the class had spent more time on ...
  25. I wish the class had spent less time on ...
  26. The best thing about this class or the instructor was ...
  27. I’d learn better if the course or the instructor would ...
  28. Here’s my advice to next semester’s MATH200 students:
