THURSDAY APRIL 5, 1973 Faculty Approves Teaching Evaluation by Tori Potts The Guilford College Fa culty met in a special session in the Moon Room on Wed nesday March 28, to consider teacher-course evaluations for this semester. Earl Redding opened the meeting with a reminder that the Quaker bus iness procedure requires the responsible and thoughtful participation of all present in order to discover the best course of action for the com munity. He termed the meet ing "an experiment in Quaker community." After a period of silence, Kathy Sebo reported for the Teacher Evaluation Sub-com mittee that Lewis Aiken, of Guilford's psychology depart ment, had offered to com pose, administer and compile results on an evaluation form geared particularly to Guil ford's needs. The committee's original proposal had been that an Educational Testing Services standardized form be used. The committee stated that they now supported the use of Dr. Aiken's form for seve ral reasons. In a memo to the faculty the committee stated, "The alternative (Aiken) form has numerous advantages ov er the SIR form: 1. Cost. The printing and tabulation costs are far less than the SIR. Dr. Aiken has graciously volunteered to help tabulate the results during the early summer. Student gov ernment funds would then be devoted to printing of the questionnaire and sharing the costs of student assistants for the tabulation. 2. Availability to the en tire college. Both campuses would be able to pursue com prehensive and uniform course evaluation. The Urban Campus student government does not have the funds to pay for the SIR form. Socol Reinstated Last Tuesday night, March 27, Scott Socol was asked by Bryan Hall head resident, Ron Cruickshank, to keep the noise down at the party being held in his suite. The next morning, he was awakened by Cruickshank and Director of Housing, Ken Schwab, who informed him that he would have to be moved out of the dorm by Friday. After work by members of the Commun ity Senate, that order was rescinded and an apology was extended Socol by Andy Gottschall, Dean of Students Socol tells his s.ory on page two. A New Keiser John Christopher, 8 pounds, 13 ounces, was born to Professor and Mrs. Melvin Keiser on Friday, March 30. Our congratulations to Mel, Beth, and Megan. 7V Quftfbrtton 3. Ease of continuity. By having our own form, we would be able to use it on a regular basis, for all classes each semester. Development of teacher effectiveness from semester to semester would be ascertained through the repetition of the evaluation process. 4. Brevity. The "Aiken Form "is considerably shorter and more precise than the SI R form. 5. Flexibility. Revisions of the form from semester to semester can be made to suit the goals of the Guilford com munity. There remains the option of each faculty mem- Preßegistration For Next Fall Preregistration for First Semester 1973-74 * Hours: 8:30 A.M. - 12:00 Noon and 1:00 P.M. 4:30 P.M.

To this effect, Anne Deagon has submitted a few possibilities, and other faculty members may choose to do likewise, for the purpose of providing suggestions as each faculty member prepares his or her optional questions." After some helpful com ments and discussion, the fa culty approved the use of the form and tentatively project ed that it would be used for the next three years. It was agreed that this teacher course evaluation is one of the many tools which will be used to improve teaching at Guilford.
