EVALUATION & ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE
Anne Mitchell, Chair

Committee members (2007):  Anne Mitchell, Chair (University of Houston), Lori Terrill, Vice-chair (University of Wyoming), Joe Badics (Eastern Michigan University), Carole Bell (Temple University), Jana Brubaker (Northern Illinois University), Sarah Corvene (Harvard Business School), Susan Davis (State University of New York, Buffalo), Lee Krieger (Library System of Lancaster County), Martha Spring (Loyola University)
Board Liaison:  Adam Chesler

In February the committee was informed that 2007 conference evaluations should again be available both in print and online so conference attendees would have a choice of evaluation format.  To encourage use of the online evaluation form, the Executive Board authorized a drawing for a free 2008 conference registration; anyone who submits an online evaluation is eligible for the drawing.

In April the committee created the print evaluation forms for the conference, preconferences, and poster sessions.  These forms were sent to the Conference Planning Committee for distribution.  To further encourage attendees to use the online evaluations, individual conference packets will not include the evaluation itself, but will contain an insert with the URL for the online evaluations.  A limited number of print evaluations will still be available on-site.

In May the committee developed the online evaluation forms.  In lieu of the custom-programmed evaluation site used in 2006, the committee is using the hosted survey product SurveyMonkey to build the online evaluations.  This tool requires no programming expertise and should greatly simplify survey creation from year to year.

The committee is working with the conference Web designer to provide a link from the conference site to the evaluations a week or so ahead of the conference.  An announcement will be made on NASIG-L when the evaluations are available.
