Faculty Evaluate Online

The Online Evaluation of Teaching was developed for online/web-based, distance (via closed-circuit television), and hybrid courses. Instructors of other courses may also opt to use this method if it meets their needs.

Some online instructors will schedule a classroom meeting near the end of the semester and prefer to administer their SET then with the pencil-paper evaluations.  If you plan to do this,

  • Make sure you give your students sufficient notice so that they can adjust their schedules. 
  • Early in the semester notify your Department SET Coordinator that you want to have pencil-paper evaluations prepared for your class.

Some instructors who teach traditional lecture classes choose to use the online SET so that it does not interrupt their class. If you plan to do this, notify your Department SET Coordinator that you will not use the pencil-paper evaluation.
