The FDFS assessed four key variables: • Instructor presence: measured by the number of days per week that the instructor was in the courseroom • Content messages: measured by the number of Socratic, corrective, and informative messages the instructor posted each week • Noncontent messages: measured by the number of administrative, affective, and other messages posted each week (a single post in the course can include both content and noncontent messages) • Course indicator rating: the monitor’s binary rating of a number of weighted items and the presence or absence of a professional and personal tone in the instructors’ responses to learners The EOCE measured six key variables on a Likert scale running from 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree): • The instructor encouraged learners to express their own ideas.

Responding to this dissatisfaction, in 2003 Capella initiated the FDFS, a program intended to improve the quantity and quality of faculty-learner feedback and of interaction in the weekly threaded discussions. Given that andragogic theory considers faculty feedback a key factor in learners’ satisfaction with their learning experience, the FDFS was designed to evaluate instructors’ contributions to the learning experience by assessing the quality of their feedback to learners in the courseroom. Specifically, the FDFS gathered data about current faculty interaction in the courseroom; developed data-supported, school-specific best practices for faculty; and created a faculty development program to implement those best practices.
