Course Developer Evaluation

This form is to be completed by the course developer. (The completed form must be submitted to the Dean of Extended and Distance Education and a paper copy sent to the
Course Developer.)

The Online Course Assessment Form has been developed by the Online Course Committee to serve as a guide for best practices and design in the development of online courses and programs. This form will serve as a tool for formative evaluation of the online course/program efforts. Please note that this form is not designed for comparison of specific individual courses since reliability and validity have not been established for such purposes. In addition, this form is not designed to assess the content of the courses. However, it is designed to provide an overall indication of the types of courses being designed for APSU Distance Education as well as areas of strengths and weaknesses to guide further development efforts for online course development.
