Designing the Model of Electronic Evaluation System to Increase Students Cooperation

Document Type : Original Article



Students evaluation of teaching is a common method in universities’ educational quality evaluation. This method can be implemented in two ways: traditional (paper based) or electronic. There are lots of benefits to the electronic method that resulted in its employment by many survey organizers. On the other hand, since the students have to enter their personal information in order to login to the system, they cannot assure that their personal information is kept confidential.
This paper presents designing a electronic evaluation system. This method not only augments the students’ assurance and their participation in electronic evaluations, but also reduces the risk of information theft caused in the typical electronic evaluations’. Moreover, it allows the system to grant the students proper access to specific evaluations. Due to this method’s simple mechanism, it can be easily implemented in software environments.
