Why is it important?

Higher education institutions and accreditation agencies routinely utilize the results of course evaluations to benchmark their learning and teaching quality assurance practices. Yet, one of the major problems of using off-class computer-based course evaluations was the relatively low response rate and the motivational factors that engage students to participate in course evaluations have never been properly studied. The study is one of first articles to address such important educational management issues.


We sincerely hope that after reading this article, higher education administrators should put more emphasis on informing students, student groups, their relatives such as parents, and teachers about what differences can be made through students' participation in course evaluations, and the benefits of course evaluation that can bring to students, their peers, their teachers, courses, and programs.
