Watch Yo’ Back, CULPA
Written by Bwog Staff
At last night’s CCSC meeting, a proposal to work towards a centralized course evaluation system was passed unanimously. Academic Affairs Representative Alidad Damooei ’09, who co-wrote the proposal with Class of 2008 President Neda Navab, has been meeting with the Office of the Vice President for Arts and Sciences to come up with a uniform set of questions (ideally five or six) that can be published in an easy accessible format, similar to that of SEAS or other Ivy League schools. CCSC now plans to work with the Vice President for Arts and Sciences, Ann McDermott (with whom Damooei has been meeting recently) to come up with such a system, and to test questions through small focus groups.
If the system gets off the ground, only time will tell if any of the “official” published evaluations will ever assume the delightfully vulgar tone of moral outrage that the best negative CULPA reviews have to offer.
