Perrett, Jamis J.Exploring Graduate and Undergraduate Course Evaluations Administered on Paper and Online: A Case Study. Assessment and Evaluation in Higher Education, 2013, 38 (February-March) pp. 85-93.

At a large southern university, course evaluations, administered online and on paper to undergraduate and graduate students, were analyzed. The results failed to show any difference in mean course ratings or instructor evaluations between the online and paper formats, but the graduate students' mean ratings for both instructor and course were higher than those of the undergraduate students. The students' mean response rates did not vary across formats or class levels, and no relationship between course attendance and the evaluations were detected.
