Although at the time of the survey, ten schools had conducted or were conducting cost analyses of Web-based evaluation, none reported the results of their analyses. Kronholm, Wisher, Curnow, and Poker conducted a comprehensive study on this issue, comparing production, distribution, monitoring, scanning, and analysis preparation costs for both paper-based and Web-based evaluations of a distance learning course. According nau evaluations to their study, delivering a 22-item paper-based evaluation to 327 participants across 18 sites costs $568.60 (or $1.74 per student, assuming labor costs are $15 per hour). The study indicates that delivering the same evaluation via the Internet is $18.75—a savings of 97%! This savings increases rapidly as course size increases, since via the Web, multiplying the number of evaluations adds practically zero cost.

ASU uses the American Council on Education’sGuide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Servicesto assess how to transfer military credits to ASU. In general, a military course must be similar to an ASU undergraduate course to transfer to ASU. ASU is proud to welcome transfer student veterans of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard to our undergraduate student community. Students wishing to transfer to ASU and who feel they have been unjustly denied credit for transfer courses may appeal to the appropriate committee. Grades and honor points that you earned at other colleges and universities are considered for admission, but your ASU cumulative grade point average is based solely on coursework taken at ASU.

Arizona’s universities, however, have responded with evasion and misdirection. At each university, the curricular changes that incorporate these requirements are vague and weak. Each university, moreover, subordinates American history and civics to separate initiatives to impose courses and programming in “diversity and inclusion.” In fact, the concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion have become the guiding principle of these institutions. Arizona’s universities, through their commitment to DEI, have “redefined” their civic mission through a new “lens,” that of oppression, power, privilege, and narrowly-defined group identity. This report surveys the political and legal background for Arizona’s civics instruction in public higher education. Colleges have grown accustomed to using end-of-term standardized evaluations as a basis for both improving the quality of instruction and making important faculty career decisions.
