In this project, I will discuss the development of tools to further evaluate the introductory physics classes offered at WPI. These courses are very important to the institution and must be kept at their highest quality. After researching and developing a background in teaching and student learning, a plan of development was set in place, including a pretest survey, midterm survey, and posttest survey. I also recommend the addition of a comment forum built to collect student's comments on teachers. The tools will emphasize student and teacher expectations of each other, relate pretest surveys to midterm surveys, and a strong basis is conceptual understanding of the physical concepts within each respective course.
