  • You use new methods in your course?
  • You want to determine the satisfaction and motivation of students in your lecture?
  • You want to measure the correlation between a tool and exam success?

Within the framework of LectureAnalytics, we help you scientifically investigate the impact of your lecture. We support you on the basis of established evaluation methods in order to answer your questions in the best possible way.

Opportunities for Teaching

Take advantage of the opportunity to evaluate and improve your course.

A well-conducted evaluation offers the chance to examine your teaching methods using established research designs. This allows you to identify weaknesses and strengths and make adjustments to your curriculum as necessary.

Successful digital delivery of your content

The use of digital teaching and educational media offers opportunities to further develop forward-looking digital skills. The decisive factor here is which tools are well accepted by students and thus support teaching and guarantee learning success.

The effectiveness of your teaching

Many innovative teaching and learning methods are being developed and applied at RWTH Aachen University. We investigate which of these digital formats enrich teaching and contribute to greater learning success so that they can be anchored in the curriculum.


Cooperation with Teachers

If you are interested in insights into the effectiveness of your course, we would be happy to take on the evaluation of your course! In an individual consultation, we work together to identify the focus of the aspects to be investigated and, on this basis, create an evaluation concept adapted to your interests. While you concentrate on the execution of your teaching, we support your course to secure the didactic concept with established survey methods. In this way, you receive well-founded feedback on your teaching.

Feel free to to arrange a kick-off appointment!


Three Pillars of Evaluation

General evaluation of university didactics

To test the effectiveness of your innovative teaching methods, we offer a battery of established instruments. These examine aspects such as the acceptance and user-friendliness of the methods and media you use as well as the competence experience and aspects relevant to study success such as learning strategies and motivation of your students.

In addition, we take into account that there may be a variety of learning and personality types among your students. We examine which of these personality traits your students bring to the course and how the learning offering can be adapted accordingly.

With the help of these standardized questionnaires, we use established methods and contents of scientific evaluation and thus create a cross-project comparability.

Learning Analytics

In order to make the learning success of your students visible, we can collect and evaluate performance data in compliance with data protection aspects. For example, results of exercises and tests that are processed via RWTH-Moodle can be included to analyze individual learning progress.

In combination with the students' self-reports on their learning and personality characteristics, it is possible for us to make recommendations for the design of teaching tailored to your group of students.

Project-based evaluation

If you have individual questions about strongly project-idiosyncratic aspects, we will be happy to search for suitable survey instruments or support you in the development of suitable operationalizations in compliance with psychometric quality criteria. At this point, you have the possibility to bring in individual and content-related questions and develop them further with us.

By combining three different data sources, a picture of the effectiveness of your teaching concept emerges. It should be noted that not all three pillars need to be equally weighted in the evaluation. Depending on the orientation and conception of the course, the main focus may shift.


Our Project Goals

While we support innovative teaching projects with evaluations, we pursue the goal of identifying particularly successful teaching methods at RWTH Aachen University. In doing so, we are driven by the question of what insights can be gained for the research field of digital university didactics.

  • Analysis of teaching at RWTH
  • Continuous improvement of teaching
  • Teaching of competencies in subject disciplines

Among other things, we look at which types of learners and personalities benefit from which teaching and learning offerings and which teaching concepts are particularly suitable for which subject areas. We also analyze which factors favor motivation and study identification and how these relate to the acceptance of digital teaching. In doing so, we use both classic survey instruments, such as questionnaires, as well as performance and behavioral data from digital learning applications.

In addition, we want to determine which applications and concepts are suitable across disciplines and universities so that digital higher education is not just a temporary success but also promotes forward-looking digital skills.

If you have any questions about our project goals or if you would like to scientifically evaluate the effectiveness of your teaching method in your role as a lecturer and instructor at RWTH Aachen University, our team will be happy to assist you.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of our team, we can draw on expertise from fields such as psychology and sociology. With a lot of experience in experimental design, implementation, and data analysis, we are looking forward to new projects and to support you in your evaluation project!
