  • Verify your personal information.  When you receive your evaluation packet confirm that the envelope label has your name and access ID.  Failure to have the correct instructor information will result in improperly credited results.
  • Verify your course information.  Carefully check to ensure that you have received the correct packet for the course or courses that you are teaching and take care to bring the correct packet to the correct class.
  • Read and follow the instructions printed on the back of the envelope to make any label corrections.  These instructions also provide you with evaluation guidelines and directions for administering the evaluation. Instructions for student administration are on the front of the envelope as well. 
  • Make use of the Instructor Supplied items.  You can give your class up to ten additional questions which they can answer on the evaluation form.  This is a great way to get specialized feedback and measure learning outcomes for your class or department painlessly.
  • Use information from your individual reports and comments to grow as an instructor.  Comments are distributed by the department SET coordinator during the middle of the following semester after evaluations have been collected in your class.  Individual Reports are emailed to the instructor's WSU email address towards the end of the following semester.
  • Use information about your global performance to demonstrate your teaching skills in personnel decisions. SET staff will send these to you two semesters after the data is collected.

  • Follow the academic calendar when scheduling final exams and posting grades, particularly if you teach an online course. The online evaluation is open until the last official scheduled day of class.
