To us, student evaluations are one of the most important influences helping to shape our training policies and decisions. We treat them seriously and pay them rigorous attention.

The Evaluation Process
Students complete our 27-point evaluation form after each class. The evaluation forms are meant to seek objective student responses about the following:
  • Instructor ability and performance, including real-world expertise and communication skills

  • Course content, with emphasis on how that content will help in job performance

  • Course materials, with emphasis on their value to future on-the-job reference
The completed forms are then sent on to our home office for review by the President, the Account Executive, and the instructor. Their reviews act as guidelines for determining instructor, course content and course material improvements.

Overview of a Year of Training

The evaluation data are analyzed regularly to provide a precise and complete picture of how much students value Themis training and areas for improvement. This analysis includes responses to both closed- and open-ended statements and questions.

We use a 1- to 5-point Likert scale for many statements (1 strongly disagree to 5 strongly agree). Averages per instructor, course content and course materials per statement are then computed, with a running tally compiled for each class and cumulatively for all classes.

For example, during this timeframe and on a scale of 1 to 5, Themis instructors averaged better than 4.50 on statements pertaining to their expertise and communications skills. We understand the importance of student evaluations, and this is why we apply rigor to their reviews and analysis.

"He is a natural teacher as well as a subject matter expert. He not only understood and answered the questions being asked - he understood why the questions were asked and gave additional information.

He treated every student with respect and went out of his way to provide other resources for us. One example of this is the fact that he produced a CD for me with the IBM Redbooks relating to a question I asked in class."

Barbara L. Klein, Manager, Education and Development
MIB, Inc.


"Instructor is excellent. I'm going to take him up on his remarkable offer to respond to my questions by email."
