Instructor Questions

Beginning Summer 2020, the SETC program allows instructors to add up to 6 of their own questions to the evaluation form. The responses to the Instructor-selected Questions are only reported back to the instructor. All instructors are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to get formative feedback from their students.

How do I add questions?

You will receive an email from the SETC team inviting you to add questions. Or you can login to the system to see if you have this task available right now.

The instructions on how to select or add questions can be found below.

Is there a question item bank available?

The LEAP Team has revamped the item bank for Summer 2020. The item bank used in previous semesters had been complied for in-person instruction and thus included many items that are inappropriate or meaningless in a remote instruction environment. The new item bank is specifically focused on gaining feedback about challenges that students often experience in a remote learning situation, such as technical issues, reduced connection with the instructor and/or other students, and time management.

Also, the items have been rewritten to reflect the student’s experience in the course instead of asking for an evaluation or judgement. For example, the item “The course instructor organized lecturers in a logical manner” was converted to “The course was organized in a manner that helped me understand course concepts.”
