Dates for Fall 2021:
OPEN: Monday Nov 22, 12:00 AM
CLOSE: Sunday Dec 5, 11:59 PM
Communication from faculty to their students is of the utmost importance to increase student response rates.
- Remind students of the deadline and importance of evaluations after each class
- Reinforce the message that student responses remain completely anonymous
- Remind students that the responses will be used to improve future courses
- Help students understand how to give constructive criticism for valuable feedback that will be heard
Students will have a two-week window to complete online instructor evaluations.
An automated e-mail will be sent to all students enrolled in the course when the evaluations have opened with instructions on how to complete their Online Instructor Evaluations. An automated reminder e-mail will be received by students every other day until the evaluation is submitted or the evaluation period closes.
Please take the time to discuss Online SETs with your students. Educating students on the importance of the evaluations and encouraging them to participate is essential to the success of this process. Please note that with the WDYT platform, we cannot identify who has/hasn't participated, nor identify their response.
Survey results are available in the campus SETs system approximately one day after grades are due. They are also available in DivaData Biobibnet approximately one month after the previous quarter ends.
From the campus SETs system: SETs from Summer 2018 forward are available in the campus SET system, https://sets.ucsc.edu, where you can interactively view anonymous SET results, including any questions you posed directly to your students, and also download reports to save for future use. If you have any trouble logging in to the SET system, help is available at email@example.com.
In DivData Biobibnet: You may already be aware that from Fall 2013 forward you may review your SETs directly through the DivData Biobibnet portal (these reports do not include questions posted directly by the instructor).
