Student Evaluations

All courses are evaluated each semester, including summer sessions, using the approved Student Survey of Instruction (SSI). If the evaluations are done with paper and pencil, faculty members must find a student volunteer to administer the surveys. SSIs are returned by the student volunteer in a sealed envelope to the School office. If the evaluations are done online, faculty members are informed of the time period for the evaluations. The students then will be provided with access to the online evaluations and instructions for completing the evaluations by a member of the College’s administration staff. The School Administrative Assistant arranges for the appropriate scoring of SSIs according to the approved group norms for the School.

SSIs are not available to individual faculty members until after grades are submitted to the Registrar. To maintain student confidentiality any written comments will be typed by a member of the School’s support staff. SSIs and the results are maintained in the School office and are available for faculty review. SSIs for Regional Campus faculty are administered and maintained by the campus at which the course is taught.
