Student Evaluation of Teaching

The Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) instrument was first implemented in Fall Quarter of 2014 at the recommendation of a task force that was appointed by the University Coordinating Committee to study the University's system for conducting student evaluations of teaching and making recommendations for improvements. The task force consulted widely, reviewed a substantial body of research, and considered and revised several drafts of proposed SET questions through an extensive feedback process. In 2014 a pilot study was launched in which the proposed SET instrument was administered in 46 winter quarter courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and in 6 Law School spring semester classes. A total of 548 students from these classes completed the SET survey.

The SET questions can be found here. More information about the SET Task Force and its work is available in the archive.
