Student Evaluation of Instruction
Student evaluation of instruction is a very important part of your role as a student. It provides the opportunity to evaluate your instructors and serves as a means to evaluate teaching effectiveness.
Evaluation takes place at the end of a semester with results placed in a faculty member's record and reviewed by a faculty committee. The information is used as one of the criteria for awarding merit and promoting faculty. Students are urged to complete the evaluation forms carefully and thoughtfully. Responses are anonymous. Results are computerized and are reviewed by instructors after students have completed the course and grades have been submitted.
Student evaluation of instruction is an open system: Students are free to evaluate a course and/or instructor outside of the formal evaluation process. Students who wish to do this are encouraged to talk with the course professor or to come in and discuss evaluation with the Associate Dean for Academic Programs or Dean of the School of Nursing.
