OVERVIEW OF THE INSTRUCTOR QUESTIONNAIRE PLATFORM The Online Questionnaire Platform is a tool where instructors can create questionnaires to:
evaluate the participant knowledge in specific topics such as marketing or Blue Ocean Strategy;
make sure that they have read and understood the pre-reading materials;
conduct peer-to-peer assessments.
This questionnaire platform is built into the StratX Simulations website and is very easy to use, both for instructors and students. It proposes pre-defined templates, but also offers to professors the ability to create custom questionnaires. Participants have the option to start, stop and resume questionnaires at any time. Analyzing the results of each questionnaire is made simple with multiple reports to view and export to Excel.
KNOWLEDGE EVALUATION AND PEER-TO-PEER EVALUATION There are two types of questionnaires: Knowledge Evaluation and Peer-to-Peer Evaluation.
A Knowledge Evaluation Questionnaire is a set of multiple-choice questions to be answered by each participant. It is aimed at testing their knowledge in a given topic.
A Peer-to-Peer Evaluation Questionnaire is a set of questions to examine the capabilities and behavior of participants. Each participant is evaluated by his/her teammates.
KNOWLEDGE EVALUATION QUESTIONNAIRES The Knowledge Evaluation Questionnaires is a set of multiple-choice questions to be answered by each participant. Evaluation of participant comprehension can be on the subject of your choice, i.e.: Marketing or Blue Ocean Strategy theory, simulation pre-reading materials, etc… The following is a list of pre-defined Knowledge Evaluation questionnaires. Full descriptions are available online when reviewing each questionnaire: Markstrat questionnaires:
PEER-TO-PEER EVALUATION QUESTIONNAIRES The Peer-to-Peer Evaluation Questionnaires is a set of questions to examine the capabilities and behavior of team participants. Each participant is evaluated by his/her teammates. The fixed set of responses for peer-to-peer questions are: Poor, Fair, Average, Good and Excellent. StratX proposes the unique template shown below. We have tried to cover the most important aspects of behavior and capabilities in only six questions.
