EVALUATION & ASSESSMENT
Anne Mitchell and Lori Terrill, Co-Chairs
The online [conference] evaluations were a success, thanks in part to vigorous promotion by the volunteers at the conference desk. The 54% response rate was a slight increase over the previous year, and all but a handful of evaluations were submitted online. The committee recommends online-only conference evaluations in 2008.
NASIG member Lisa Blackwell was the winner of the evaluation drawing, as announced on NASIG-L. The list of respondents was pulled into a spreadsheet and deduplicated (poster and preconferences evaluations were submitted separately, so some individuals appeared more than once). 188 names remained, and the website random.org was used to generate a random number between 1 and 188. The resulting number corresponded to the winner’s position on the spreadsheet.
Committee member Carole Bell will be the contact person for speakers who wish to receive information about their individual session ratings and comments.
