We have plans to provide a multitude of reports. Those currently available are:
Individual Instructor Reports: Individual reports for each instructor teaching a course section. The report includes the responses to the likert scale items and the open-ended questions.
Academic Area SRTE Reports: These reports contain all of the official question responses for a Campus or College in a single document. Summary results are now provided for course-sections with fewer than 5 responses. This restriction was removed by the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs. Each line contains the summarized data for a course section. The reports are ordered by course designation, number and section. There are two reports available for your view—Summary Report: 2 columns per question (mean and response count) and Expanded Report: 9 columns per question (mean, response count, and count for each score of 1-7)
Academic Area Open-Ended Reports: These reports contain the open-ended text results for both the University-wide and the academic area questions. These reports are ordered by both Instructor User ID (ABC123) and course designation.
We expect to have all individual instructor reports available in one location by the end of summer 2011. Until then, you can view results prior to spring 2011 by visiting https://www.srte.psu.edu/Reports/Reports_Home.aspx. Results for spring 2011 and later are available at https://rateteaching.psu.edu/courseeval/.
There is currently no option to download individual results. You will need to print the Web page containing individual results and manually compare printouts from multiple semesters. It is important to remember that each instructor is evaluated on his/her own merits so comparing results is not necessarily beneficial.
Plans are underway to develop reports that will visually compare a range of semesters. Until that feature is available, you will need to print the results and compare them manually.
Check with your SRTE representative to make sure SRTEs were administered for the course where you expect to see SRTE results. If SRTEs were administered, check with your results access administrator to make sure you have access to the expected campus, college or academic unit information.
The instructor of record for a course and academic unit administrators have access to instructor results. There may also be other administrative personnel in the academic unit, college, or campus who have access for administrative purposes. SRTE results for faculty who teach World Campus courses are sent to World Campus administrators. World Campus will share these results with the academic administrators in the academic unit that sponsors the faculty member.
Each academic unit has an SRTE Results Access Administrator who is responsible for decisions regarding access to SRTE results for their academic unit.
The teaching and learning consultants at the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence are available at no cost to discuss issues related to teaching and learning with anyone who teaches Penn State students.
