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 Faculty 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.


  • Administrators have access to all 2021 SRTEs. For more information, see Guidance on Assessment of Effective Teaching from the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs; p. 8, provides a summary table of access decisions from spring 2020 - present.

  • The SRTE Short Form will continue to be used until further notice. First used in fall 2020, the text of the new items is available here.
  • All 2020 SRTE results (spring, summer, fall) are only available to instructors.
