SRTEs: Penn State’s instrument for gathering student feedback at the end of a course.

Approved by the University Faculty Senate in 1985, the Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs is responsible for their oversight and the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence manages the SRTE process and helps facilitate appropriate use of SRTE data.

Announcements

  • SRTEs and Canvas: We have been receiving a number of inquiries about SRTEs for courses using Canvas. Most faculty and students do not realize that clicking on the ANGEL SRTE link takes them to a different location. At this point, there is not a similar link in Canvas, but we are exploring the possibility for one in the future.

    All students are sent an email from the SRTE system directing them to the SRTE tool at https://rateteaching.psu.edu. Faculty can go to the same site to check their response rates and to view their results, when available.

  • SRTEs Go Mobile! Students now have the option to complete their SRTEs using a mobile friendly web version for phones and tablets—no app required. Students may find it convenient to respond to open-ended questions using the voice-recognition built into their mobile devices.

  • Looking for ways to help your students provide you with more constructive responses to open-ended SRTE questions? Check out Suggestions for Teaching College Students How to Write a Teaching Evaluation.

  • Attention SRTE Administrators: Fall '15 Academic Area Reports are now ready for viewing.
