  • Proposed data analysis
    1. Look at students taking consecutive courses in adjacent semesters (i.e. EG101-EG121, MA271-MA375, etc).
    2. Divide by faculty
    3. Generate information about pass/fail ratio of second course
    4. Compare individual faculty to average of all faculty or to some predefined benchmark.
    5. Each department should identify at least one segment.
    6. Note that this would be most effective with departments offering large section counts for these coursers.
    7. Note also that assessment only works for those faculty involved in such sections.
