Here is single table summarizing of the numerical data for two key questions, Question 1: A high level of effort was demanded by this course, and Question 5: The instructor was an effective teacher. (Students are asked to agree or disagree on a seven point scale.) Molly made up these charts. Thanks.
Here are the university summaries for the quantitative sections, including all five questions.
Note that there is a screw up on these forms with 202A (Reasoning) and 203A (Ethics) from the Spring of 2006. I gave the Ethics forms to the Reasoning class, so all the Reasoning responses were tabulated by the university as Ethics. When it came time to give evaluation forms to Ethics, I discovered that I only had the 202A, Reasoning, forms to give out. I tried to compensate for the mistake by having the students write 203A:Ethical Theory on the form. The university refused to tabulate any form that had the extraneous marks on it. They did however tabulate 3 forms from students who did not follow my instructions. Of course, these were ethics students, whose three forms were then tabulated as Reasoning.
All of this is corrected in the summaries that Molly made up for me, and you can check it against the raw data.
OK, here is the raw data.
- Introduction to Philosophy 100A
- Introduction to Philosophy 100D
- Philosophy of Science 301A (That year we did all philosophy of biology)
- Science: Questions, Methods, Reflections 101A
- Ethical Theory 203A
- Special Topics: History of the Concept of Mind 348b
Further Update: Let's also add a link to my page at Ratemyprofessors.com. Please note that 33.3% of the students reporting (N=3) rated me as "hot."
