As more and more completely online degree programs are established, the need to develop evaluation methodologies and processes to guide that assessment practice increases. While much attention has been given to the quality of online courses or components of courses, much less focus has been given to the evaluation of online degree programs as a whole. Past research has compared online learning to face-to-face learning, explored the effectiveness of online tools such as discussion boards and chat rooms, assessed interactive aspects of courses, addressed evaluating effective online instruction, and assessed the value of online courses in specific fields of study. There have also been articles concerning the success or failure of a variety of technologies used in this environment and administrative control processes. As this past research indicates, much of the literature about online evaluation of teaching and learning has been aimed at the individual course level. While these studies make significant contributions to the best practice and theoretical framework for the use of individual tools and processes, they do not specifically explore program evaluation in a holistic manner. A systematic evaluation in online instruction is very essential for any university that offers online programs.
Through a review of the programs and consultations with program administration and faculty, Chicago Training & Consultancy will develop a plan with the purpose of assessing the state of the program in reference to its goals, determining a roadmap for program improvement, quality assurance, and providing a framework for future decision-making.
