ECON201 Course Evaluation
Please answer the questions honestly and as fully as you can.

The purpose of this survey is to inform research and development to better understand how digital course ware (e.g. Lumen Learning’s Waymaker) can support teaching and learning. By completing this survey, you will help improve the effectiveness of Waymaker course ware in the future. The survey asks about how you used Waymaker and what you thought about it. Your honest responses are necessary to be able to figure out what works to enhance student learning and what doesn’t work.

Your participation in this research study is voluntary and you may decline to answer any question or withdraw from the study at any time. If you decide not to participate or later withdraw your participation, you will not be subject to any penalty. Additionally, Dr. Greenlaw will not have access to the survey responses until after grades are submitted, so your responses will not affect your grade in ECON 201 in any way. By way of thanks, participants completing this survey will receive extra credit towards your final grade.

Confidentiality: We will treat the information you supply in a confidential manner. Only selected research project staff will have access to your actual survey responses and those data will be stored securely. We will not share your individual responses or any other information you provide us about your professional background and instructional practices with anyone outside the research team. We will report all data in aggregate form; individuals will not be named.
