Assessment: Data for Evaluating Workshop and Collecting Particpant Information

Evaluating workshop sessions and collecting information about the participants who attend the Elluminate sessions are keys to providing an effective service. The survey data from the first semester Elluminate workshop series during the spring 2007 semester was overall very positive. The survey included the following questions:
  1. How would you rate this workshop on a scale from 1-5 (1 is lowest and 5 is highest)?
  2. What is your major?
  3. What is your class?
  4. How did you find out about this workshop?
  5. Would you like to join our CTL-write listserv?
  6. What time of day would you prefer to attend our workshops?
  7. What day of the week would you prefer to attend our workshops?
  8. What other writing workshops would you like to attend?
  9. What additional comments do you want to share with us?
