Usefulness of Student Evaluation of Faculty Teaching Using Cellular Telephones
Department of Molecular Anatomy, Nippon Medical School
Faculty teaching of the Anatomy Dissection Course was evaluated by 101 medical students using an Internet site accessed via computers or cellular telephones. The total number of answers was 263, and the response rate was 52%. Access to the site was by cellular telephones in 95.8% of cases (63.9% off-campus) and by on-campus computers provided by the college in only 1.5% of cases. The cellular telephone was most often cited (61.7% of answers) as the "most appropriate tool for answering the questionnaire." Students attached great importance to accessibility or handiness when answering the questionnaire. We suggest that the cellular telephone is a useful digital device for educational assessment by students.
