Abstract

Distance education has created new challenges with respect to the course evaluation process. This study aimed to determine if the adopted Telecourse Evaluation Questionnaire (TEQ) could be used to effectively evaluate a course developed for multisite distance delivery and taught by a team of instructors. It utilized a pretest and posttest instrument designed to assess perceived knowledge in course concepts. The follow-up posttest used the same instrument with an adapted version of Biner's (1993) TEQ. While the multiple technologies, instructors, and locations made effective evaluation a challenge, results show that the adapted TEQ was successful in evaluating components of the course and it could be recommended for use in similar courses. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
