Anti-Calendar



Methodology

Student evaluations can only be printed in the Anti-Calendar with the consent of the appropriate instructor. If a course does not appear here, that is because we either lack permission from the instructor, or were prevented from obtaining the information for some other reason.

Data source: The data comes from the Student Survey Forms that are completed at the end of each course, or at the end of a particular instructor's section in a course. Surveys are optionally filled in by students either in class or on the Intranet.

Each survey table is identified by course code, course title, the lecture (in very few cases, the tutorial or laboratory) section, the instructor who taught that section, and the session (term) during which the course took place.

Course Enrollment: The number of students who were enrolled in the course.

Percent Response: The percentage of students enrolled in the course who completed a Student Survey Form.

Survey Questions

The numbers in the tables represent the percentage, not total number, of respondents who indicated a score of 1 to 7.

Not all questions from the Student Survey Form are included in the Anti-Calendar. The questions that are included can generally be broken down into two sections: one referring to the instructor and the other referring to the course.

For the instructor
1=extremely poor   2=very poor   3=poor   4=adequate   5=good   6=very good   7=outstanding

For the course
1=very low   2=low   3=below average   4=average   5=above average   6=high   7=very high

Numbers may not be entirely accurate, particularly those in the earlier years.

Comments

The Comments section following the data tables is generated from the comments students have included on the Student Survey Form. All comments are carefully reviewed, compared and contrasted to one another, and a final consolidated statement is produced.

"No Comments" may not literally mean that no comments were received, but rather that very few comments were received, or the comments disagreed with one another such that a balanced and accurate synthesis was not feasible. There were also a few organizational glitches that resulted, unfortunately, in data being available without comments.
