Classroom Assessment

A classroom assessment entails inviting someone—a CETL staff member or a colleague from your department or elsewhere in the College—to sit in on your lectures to provide you with constructive feedback about your teaching. Its aim is not to replace student evaluations, but rather to provide an alternative perspective on your teaching.

Classroom assessments are also completely confidential—we will only release the observations and report to you. Subsequently, it is up to you whether or not you would like to share it with your department chair (or anyone else).
