Recommended Response Rates for the CEQ
The following table shows suggested minimum response rates for the CEQ based on class size.
|Recommended Response Rates for the Course Evaluation Questionnaire (CEQ)*|
|Class Enrollment||Recommended Minimum Response Rate|
*Assumptions: 10% sampling error, 80% confidence interval, 80/20 split in responses. Courses with small class sizes, i.e., less than 5 students
enrolled, are not mandated to use the CEQ and would require a response rate of 80 to 100%. Determination of assumptions based on literature
review, class enrolment data at Memorial, and historical data on response option split for the Memorial CEQ. Sampling calculations derived
from Dillman (2007).
