Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) Task Force

Thursday, March 20, 2014

A task force has completed its report on how Santa Clara University could improve its system for student evaluations of teaching (SET). The Provost's Office has launched a pilot study in which the proposed SET instrument was administered in 46 winter quarter courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In the coming weeks, the proposed SET instrument will be administered in a sample of Law classes as our law students conclude their spring semester.

The pilot data will allow for examination of the reliability of the proposed instrument and for studying other psychometric properties of the instrument as a whole and of its individual items. The results of the study will be shared with the task force and the campus community early in the spring quarter. I will be interested in receiving your feedback on the task force report and the pilot study
