Evaluating Teaching Consistency and Equity across Multiple Laboratory Sections
This article describes a study in which a university course that is divided into many sections was evaluated for grading congruence and teaching conformity to determine the effectiveness of weekly teaching team meetings and a comprehensive instructors' teaching guide. Three grading variables, a semester project, laboratory reports, and examination scores, were studied over a five-semester period and compared within semesters, across semesters, and by season (fall or spring). Significant differences in grades were found among only a few sections, and not with all course grading elements.
