Student Evaluations of Teaching Effectiveness (SETE)

Course Evaluations

Purpose

The Student Evaluations of Teaching Effectiveness (SETE) is an important method of assessing instructional effectiveness. Through the SETE process, students provide anonymous feedback to their instructors and departments about their recent learning experience. SETEs provide valuable data about course content and instructional practices that can inform and improve instructional effectiveness, and enhance student learning.

For more information regarding the policies that guide the SETE process, please refer to University Policy on Student Evaluation of Teaching (2014-1).
