Student Evaluations of Instruction

All courses are evaluated each semester, including summer sessions, using the approved Student Survey of Instruction (SSI). The SSI must be conducted during the last week of class, prior to finals week and not during finals week. Faculty members should arrange for the administration of the Survey by another faculty member, graduate student, or responsible student in the class. At no time should the faculty member being reviewed be present in the room during the survey. The SSIs are immediately returned in a sealed envelope to the School of Art Office. The School of Art staff member responsible for SSIs arranges for their appropriate scoring according to the approved group norms for the School of Art. SSIs are not available to individual faculty members until after grades are submitted to the Registrar. SSIs are maintained in the School office and are available for faculty review. SSIs for regional campus courses are administered and maintained by the campus on which the courses are taught.
