For many reasons, end-of-course evaluation data are not enough. They come in too late to benefit the students doing the evaluation and they do not give us the details we need. They are a one way communication, and students do not believe they make a difference. Feedback activities during the semester are much more effective, and faculty who use these techniques learn more about how to improve their course than they would from end-of-semester evaluations.
