Feedback on Data Analysis

Hi all
The link below takes you to Bron's feedback for my data analysis. I have taken her comments on board and will adjust the final report accordingly. (I had already done some of what she said already as I've already started doing the final plan, but will change some other parts for Assignment 4.

Thanks also to Joy for giving me great feedback too.

No idea why but my lovely tables and graphs are not in the Google doc version below...

Have emailed Bronwyn my original document, it looks so much nicer when formatted in its original form.

Data analysis

Finally I've finished analysing my data. Here is the link to Google docs (the formatting has been thrown off a little though)

Six questionnaires were handed out and completed by the Certificate in Global Travel students by our programme administrator on June 22nd after students attended the last assessment for their programme (therefore providing a 100% response rate).

The purpose of the questionnaire was to assess the effectiveness of the current UCOL online resources used for the Tourism and Travel “Destination” unit standards as part of the Certificate in Global Travel Level 4, and to identify areas for improvement.
The questionnaire helped gain an insight into what the students found useful and appropriate for their on line learning. However the focus group generated much more beneficial discussion about the usefulness, appropriateness and ability of online resources to help in students learning and information retention. Students were receptive to using new technologies and had many practical and constructive comments to be taken into consideration when planning and implementing the new on line resources to be developed for introduction in 2010.
So once Bronwyn (or anyone else) has given me feedback on this, I can get onto the final report! Phew, this has been a hard uphill struggle for me!

Draft Evaluation Plan (version 2)

What a month it has been! After being all enthusiastic at getting back into the paper I then hit the ultimate brick wall - marking! Seriously I have been marking solidly for 4 weeks now (albeit it with a 5 day break in between to Queenstown for a trip away with the students to mark the end of their course!) - yes I know - poor me!

Anyway I now am trying frantically to get back into it (again).

This is my second draft on Google docs of the Evaluation Plan after Bronwyn's comments and includes the appendices (the questionnaire and the Focus Group questions). Here's the link:

I have the results to analyse next... yes I know I'm so far behind!! I will get there eventually!
