Collecting Assessment Data

Assessment Loop

The Data Collection Process Defined

Traditionally, designated faculty members in programs at LBCC have collected data from their full and part-time peers through word documents or excel spreadsheets in emails and in hard-copy formats. Our ASLO subcommittee is currently creating new and innovative data collection methods meant to simplify the data collection process for faculty across the college. 


Google Documents

Utilizing Google Documents is an easy way to collect data from faculty members at the course and program levels. Essentially, a Google Document is a questionnaire that you create. On these documents, you can prompt faculty to enter specific data from their sections of a course. For instance, you can ask faculty to enter the semester their data was collected during, what course the data is from, the specific amount of students who met the achievement level, the total amount of students who participated in the assessment, and any other information you need to complete your course or program assessment. 

The best thing about Google Documents? Once a Google Document is created, a web link is also created for the document. The link to your document can easily be emailed to faculty members. Once faculty have input their data into the Google Document the data is automatically entered into an excel spreadsheet stored in your Google account. In this way, you can collect data for a course or courses from multiple faculty members over multiple semesters and all the data is organized and stored in the same file until your department is ready to analyze it. 

A sample Google Document is provided here

If you are interested in creating Google Documents to collect data for courses in your program, you can use the step-by-step instructions provided in the document below or contact the Educational Assessment Research Analyst to assist you in creating these forms.
