The TLC offers two services free-of-charge to UTSA faculty members, grauate students, departments, and units (1) one-hour structured Focus Groups(FGs); and (2) twenty-minute Quick Courses Diagnoses (QCDs).
Both protocols capture and display information related to student satisfaction levels, Student Learning Outcomes(SLOs), and course/program strengths and weaknesses. These data are displayed through Excel Histograms and a color-coded Word table (See examples below). Additionally, the longer Focus Group offers a transcript of the responses to open-ended questions.
