Dear Teacher

The Program Committee has decided that in the fall (week 44) class teaching is to be evaluated following the same procedure as in earlier terms. The Program Committee is intent on a development-oriented evaluation that may contribute to amending any shortcomings in due time, that is, in mid-term. In addition, teachers and students must ascertain whether this has succeeded at the end of term.

The procedure is this:

 

Mid-term evaluation

Students complete the evaluation forms provided by the Program Committee. For this, approximately 10 minutes of the lesson are scheduled.

Two students (chosen by the class without teacherís interference) and teacher count up the forms and summarize the most important points in writing. This is done between lessons.

On the basis of the summarized points, it is discussed at the first-coming session what is done well and what can be improved. Time consumption: as required. The points summarized from the evaluation forms are kept for final evaluation.

 

Final evaluation

The points summarized from mid-term evaluation are taken as starting point for evaluation of the activities of students and teacher.

Students are given 30 minutes of the last lesson. Students complete a note which is presented to the teacher for comments. Note and teacherís comments are handed in to Program secretary.

 

Yours truly
