Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness in Banner

Overview

The electronic "Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness" is available the last 5 weeks of the semester in Banner. Instructors must submit a request for their students to have access (see instructions below). Accommodations can be requested for special situations such as team teaching and short courses.

The evaluation has been optimized for display on small screens (such as for cell phones and other mobile devices). Instructors are encouraged to use class time for their students to complete the evaluation. Please note that instructors are required to leave the room while their students complete the evaluation.

1. Go to http://www.rowan.edu/selfservice
2. Click "Access Banner Services - Secure Area - login Required." 
3. Enter User ID and PIN.

5. Click "Request Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness.” 
6. Select one of the classes that you are currently teaching.

1. Go to http://www.rowan.edu/selfservice
2. Click "Access Banner Services - Secure Area - login Required."

Student Course Evaluation Questions

Student Evaluation Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) (Updated Fall 2015)

Tactics for Improving Response Rates

  • Select a class during the last 5 weeks you expect high attendance - each student will need an Internet connected device or reserve a computer lab (see below)
  • Conduct the evaluation at the beginning of the class and NOT the end, and explain that you've allowed 15-20 minutes to complete the evaluation because it is important that you hear from everyone
  • Leave the room (It is critical you & any TA are out of the room)
  • Appoint a student to notify you when to return.
  • Always remind students their responses are anonymous
  • Monitor your response rates periodically and take active steps to improve low response before the time ends. 
  • "Nagging" by email is one of the most powerful tactics - this can be done by you through Banner (see above)
  • Stress to students that their opinions are valued and expected
