Evaluation of supporting courseware by means of online and offline questionnaires
A template for worked out problems and tutorials on the internet, as presented in former CBLIS conferences, was recently extended with an evaluation system. At the end of a session the student is prompted to fill in a questionnaire. Evaluation data, together with variables from the template (answers to questions in the courseware, timely information) are gathered on a central location. The system is used for evaluation of the courseware supporting a first year university physics course. Apart from the internet data, a paper and pencil questionnaire at the end of the course provides information about the students' study habits and preferences. In this way an answer is expected to the question, which supporting courseware will be appropriate for students with a certain profile of study habits. The paper gives the results of the evaluation. Furthermore a discussion is given which data can be gathered online and what kind of data are collected preferably by means of an additional questionnaire.
