The University of Oregon is moving to drop numerical student ratings of teaching. Students will be asked for written feedback to structured prompts for instructor and course improvement - not as high-stakes professional evaluation

I should add - if approved. This is in the development and piloting phase right now. But I’m hopeful this will work out (disclosure: I was on the task force that this came out of)

So how will "high-stake professional evaluation" be conducted? I applaud your efforts.

Would love to hear what the prompts are, and how you convinced the university to pilot this.

How will you motivate/incentivize students to take the extra time to write feedback, rather than just more quickly picking a numerical ranking? We currently only get about 1/3 of our students responding to course evaluations.

By doing in the middle of the term, students will know that the feedback could be used for the course they’re taking. That might be motivating

How will you aggregate the responses? Or is goal just feedback for improvement?

Real question: will there still be departmental reviews and/or evaluation of teaching?
