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.


  • Guidance on use of SRTE results for 2021 has been released by the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs. SRTE results for 2021 will be available to administrators and review committees.
  • In Fall 2021, all courses will continue to use the short-form developed for Fall 2020.
  • As of 3/4/21, the SRTE system has a new login. Users will login on a Microsoft page before being redirected to the Penn State Login.
  • SRTE results from Fall 2020 are only available to instructors.
