SFF Information for Instructors

Every instructor is required to have his or her teaching evaluated by students every semester using a standard form adopted for such purpose. [Policy (02.78.14), Nov. 2002]

Student feedback is anonymous and confidential; results are available in composite form after grades have been submitted and evaluations processed. Please be advised that to preserve student anonymity data are not reported for any course in which the enrollment is fewer than five students.

e-SFFs

As of Summer 2012, the SFFs for undergraduate and graduate courses are conducted online.

Students will be sent emails from the University asking them to complete their evaluations online. If there are additional items instructors would like students to complete, those items need to be distributed before the initial University email is sent (see the e-SFF Administration Calendar below).

Email communication for short duration and early start courses are sent directly by school/college liaisons.

Instructors are encouraged give students time in class to complete e-SFFs, and to discuss with students the importance of providing course and instructor feedback.

Reports

After grades have been submitted and student evaluation forms processed, instructors receive their SFF reports via TUPortal. Reports for the online data are available within a few weeks of the close of grading. Reports from paper-based feedback are available approximately six weeks after the last day of classes for the semester.

SFF Instructor Reports are available through the Student Feedback Forms Channel » on TUportal.
