STUDENT GOVERNMENTS SUPPORT PUBLICATION
Coalition to push for evaluations
By MITCH STUART
The Intercollege Student Gover-
ment Coalition (ICSGC), in its first
:meeting this term, informally resolved
3ast night to go ahead with plans to im-
plement a University-wide course and
faculty evaluation program. Chairman
-Marc Breakstone said the key to IC-
SGC's plans is making the evaluations
"by and for students."
The proposed evaluation program
would be sponsored by the Michigan
tudent Assembly (MSA). The infor-
ation gathered through the program
would be published by MSA also.
BREAKSTONE, Academic Affairs
Coordinator for MSA, said the
Coalition's main concern last term was
a "lack of student participation in
decision-making at the University."
Sarah Jones, representative on the
Student Policy Advisory Committee of
the School of Natural Resources, said
her school is already looking into im-
rovin existing evaluation procedures.
4he added, however,,hat she could see
the benefits of a centralized evaluation
Breakstone said, "Almost every
major university has it (an evalutaion
program) except us. It's really a sin
that this University has nothing like
HE SAID filling out evaluations is
considered futile by many students,
since many times they never see the
esults. "There would be much more
responsible evaluation if students knew
the information would be coming back
to them," he said.
Dan Soloman, president of the LSA-
Student Government, said that
requesting all colleges release current
evaluation information (when
available) would be a big first step for
the group. "We should take what we
have and start an organization with
that," he said. Soloman added that
publishing such information would
spark student concern and par-
Breakstone admitted that such
distribution would be valuable, but said
the group's ultimate goal is to "even-
tually develop a program for Univer-
sity-wide course evaluation."
HE SAID the major advantages to
such a program would be that all the in-
formation would be centralized for
student use, and some of tthe published
information would be subjective, rather
than simply percentages or ratings.
Breakstone said he hopes to keep the
evaluation on a voluntary basis for
faculty - he said nothing would be
published about individual courses or
faculty members without their per-
Sahba laal, president of the Architec-
ture Student Caucus, said he agreed
that an evaluation program would be
useful to students in all colleges. He ad-
ded, however, there is another concern
of Architecture students.
"WHAT IS really concerning Ar-
chitecture students right now is the
programming," Sahba said. He said the
major reason he would support an
evaluation program would be as a
logical step toward a change to a more
design-oriented program for the school.
Caroll McGill, president of the
Engineering Council, said she also sup-
ports a University-wide evaluation
Breakstone said that establishing
such a program would be difficult. "In
order to ensure continuity you need
student support and knowledge. To get
student support, you need an effective
survey. It's a vicious circle," he said.
He baid he sees three purposes to
" Providing feedback to instructors;
" Helping administrators with
promotion and tenure decisions, and
* Helping students choose courses
"The third is my basic goal,"
Breakstone said. He added, though that
ICSGC would have to be careful: "At
this stage of the game we can't be real
buccaneer about this."
