Student Evaluations of Teaching Effectiveness

There are a number of different student evaluations available at Rowan University.

  • The Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness. This online survey in Banner features 13 questions and can be accessed by any faculty member at Rowan. This evaluation tool does not feature national norming.

  • IDEA Student Ratings of Instruction (SRI). Beginning in Spring 2020, departments will have the opportunity to use this 40-question online survey, powered by Campus Labs. This tool offers rich data analysis, including national norming. This instrument may be used by the faculty member only if the department has opted into the program, and the faculty member’s course code has been entered into the system.

  • Rowan Global survey in Canvas for Online Classes. This instrument contains the same questions as the Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness, plus a few additional questions specific to online learning.

The Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning oversees The Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness and the IDEA Student Ratings of Instruction (SRI).

Note: Some departments use other types of student evaluations, either on paper or online.

How will I know which evaluation to use?

The Rowan Global survey is for online classes only.

For a face-to-face class, check with your department to see their requirements or suggestions. If there are not strict requirements, you are free to choose.

Who will see my evaluations?

Per the AFT Local Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), the evaluation reports will be issued directly to the faculty member. The faculty member can choose whether to share the reports with the department or include the reports in a tenure, recontracting, or promotion packet.
