CERTI, Missouri S&T’s faculty development center for teaching and learning, will host a series of brown bag lunch meetings discussing “S&T Course Evaluations: Beyond Question 7,” this semester. Dr. Larry Gragg will moderate the first discussion at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 24, in Room 208 Norwood Hall. All faculty are welcome. Dessert and beverages will be provided. RSVP to Diane Hagni at by Monday, Feb. 22, to reserve your spot.

Using data he compiled from course evaluation research, Gragg will discuss the influences on how a course is rated; whether gender, course requirements or student grade level have any bearing; whether grades were inflated in the recent past; and whether high student evaluations reflect effective teaching.
Gragg and Dan Cernusca, instructional design specialist at S&T, will moderate subsequent discussions on Wednesday, March 24 and Wednesday, April 14.
