The specific procedures for determining when SRTEs are conducted are determined by the unit college and with consideration of the following principles about the frequency of reviews:
Students' Evaluation of Educational Quality (SEEQ) is a 9-factor omnibus student rating form that has been heavily researched by nearly one million surveyed respondents as being appropriate for determining teaching effectiveness over diverse settings.
The SEEQ survey is available to all instructors from the Learning Object Repository (LOR) in ANGEL. Use the instructions in the following link to import the SEEQ survey into your course, browsing to find Mid-Semester Feedback Survey and checking the SEEQ survey box (http://kb.its.psu.edu/cms/article/531). The SEEQ is set to be anonymous and we recommend instructors do not change this setting because students may provide more honest feedback if their names are not associated with their responses. Within ANGEL, you can analyze your SEEQ data by following the instructions available at http://kb.its.psu.edu/cms/article/72.
Yes, it is recommended that all courses be evaluated. June 2011 the restriction on providing results for courses with less than 5 student responses was removed by the Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs.
SRTE forms contain five sections: University, Department, Instructor, Open-ended University, and Additional Questions.
The University section contains four required questions. These questions are listed in the prescribed order.
The Department section may contain up to 15 of the 177 defined item choices. Selection and order of these items is approved by the administrator.
The Instructor section may contain up to 5 of the 177 defined item choices. The instructor selects and determines the order in which these items are displayed.
The University Open-ended section contains two open-ended questions – "What helped you learn in this course?" and "What changes would improve your learning?" – designed to solicit written student feedback.
The Additional Questions section may contain up to 20 questions defined by the administrator. These may be Likert, yes-no, or open-ended questions.
You should discuss adding questions to the Additional Questions section with your administrator.
If you have additional questions about the SRTEs and their administration, please contact your campus or college representative.
