The CSU QOLT evaluation instruments are designed to help support and identify exemplary practices for the design and delivery of hybrid and online courses. Each instrument is composed of 58 items across 10 sections, including the recently added “Mobile Platform Readiness.” There is a formative rubric score given at the end of each section, as well as a summative score and rubric at the end of the instrument.
Online CSU QOLT Instruments, Non-Award Versions
The instruments linked below are used by faculty and staff independently of the CSU QOLT Awards program that runs from November – May. We are not responsible for maintaining or providing data submitted through the following non-award versions of the QOLT instruments. If you are interested in participating in the CSU QOLT Awards and Recognition program, see the Call for Participation and awards version of the surveys.
QOLT Course Assessment – Instructor Self-Rating – Non-AwardS Version:
Those interested in performing a self-rating of their course can use the non-award version of the CSU QOLT Instructor Self-Rating. This evaluation instrument is to be used by instructors evaluating their own course. The process will take at least 1 hour, as it is intended to be a reflective examination of your course, not a simple survey of opinions. You will want to have your course and survey open in separate browser windows to best complete the process. If, for some reason, you cannot complete the evaluation in one session, you can save your progress and re-enter the survey at a later date. Those completing the CSU QOLT self-rating instrument can have a copy of the results sent to them by electing to do so at the end of the instrument. We are not responsible for maintaining a database or providing results on demand.
Quality Online Learning and Teaching (QOLT) Course Assessment – Peer-Rating
This non-award version of the CSU QOLT Peer-Rating instrument is used by a colleague of the instructor (e.g., department colleague, campus instructional designer) to evaluate the course that is the subject of review. When submitting the survey, enter your email address and/or that of the instructor to obtain a copy of the results. We are not responsible for maintaining a database or providing results on demand.
Quality Online Learning and Teaching (QOLT) Course Assessment – Student Rating:
This non-award version of the CSU QOLT Student-Rating instrument is used by students to evaluate the course of their respective instructor. Students are able to print or save a confirmation they can submit to their instructor. The student ratings are anonymous and the confirmation does not include any data submitted by the student, just confirmation of completion. We are not responsible for maintaining a database or providing results on demand.
Printable Copy of CSU QOLT Instructor (Self) and Peer-Review Course Assessment Instrument:
This non-award Word version serves as a viewable/printable copy of the QOLT self-evaluation, as well as the peer-evaluation. This format is good for training or other informational purposes, such as one-on-one consulting. In addition, there is a 2-page QOLT document that simply lists the sections and respective objectives.
