tandfonline.com – Applying a fuzzy questionnaire in a peer review process

This paper introduces the application and the results of a fuzzy number based questionnaire used for evaluating lecturers’ performance in a newly launched peer review programme in order to enhance the reliability of peer evaluations. In our approach, the membership function of the fuzzy number is composed of an increasing and a decreasing sigmoid membership function conjuncted by Dombi’s intersection operator. Compared to the traditional Likert scale-based evaluation, the proposed fuzzy number based methodology allows peer reviewers to express their uncertainty and the variability of the reviewed lecturer’s performance within a single lecture and during a semester in a quantitative way. By utilising the principles of Dombi’s Pliant Arithmetic, fuzzy Likert scale based evaluations given by peer reviewers can be cumulated by aggregating the parameters of the left- and right-hand sides of the fuzzy numbers separately. This property results in a much simpler statistical analysis of the gathered data than the methods previously proposed in the literature. A demonstrative case study illustrates our main contributions in peer evaluation.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
