Abstract [en]

This paper addresses problematic aspects of course evaluation practices at Karlstad University, Sweden. More specifically the paper discusses a specific course evaluation that was produced and filled out in a class, spring semester 2009. The evaluation had a special focus on course development and departed from an understanding of students as collaborators in the development of university courses. This paper also addresses general problems with course evaluations such as the divergent functions evaluations are supposed to satisfy and whether to standardise or not. In this paper I suggest that even though standardisations should be avoided, flexible templates could be used. And concerning evaluations different functions attending to divergent interests,  I argue that the different stakeholders should be responsible to compile evaluations according to their standards, not only the responsible lecturer. The course evaluation that were tested and discussed in this paper was produced within the framework of a university pedagogy project.
