SFF Administrative Information
The Office of IRA and the Senior Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies coordinate the administration of SFFs. SFF coordinators in the school/college deans' offices verify accuracy of instructor and course information included in the SFF administration, help promote the importance of SFF completion to students and faculty, and distribute SFF results.
The SFFs for undergraduate and graduate courses are conducted online. Instructors and students can access the website during the live evaluation period (see the SFF Activity Calendar below) at esff.temple.edu. The website link is included in emails sent to instructors and students, and is available on TUportal through the SFF Channel (visible on the Student Tools or Faculty Tools tab) or on a student's Next Steps Channel.
Review Course and Instructor Information
The SFF system is populated with course and instructor information fed directly from Banner. Course and instructor information must be reviewed prior to the SFF administration to ensure accuracy and to make any needed adjustments. It is essential that instructors and students are able to access the appropriate forms and that responses are captured and applied to the appropriate course and instructor. A mistake can cause corrupted data.
Course and instructor information can be easily reviewed through the SFF Admin Panel, a dashboard for IRA staff and SFF coordinators to manage SFF administration, data and reporting. Each school/college coordinator can download a Course/Instructor File from the SFF Admin Panel which includes courses for inclusion in the SFF database for the current semester. After the various Drop/Add periods for the fall, spring and summer terms, each coordinator should download the course/instructor file for review and make any needed adjustments directly in Banner.
IRA works closely with each school/college to ensure that courses are properly transferred into the e-SFF database after the initial review process. The coordinator sends a confirmation email to IRA stating that course/instructor data have been verified and are ready to be moved into production. IRA then loads courses into production and manages University-wide communication to students and instructors as listed in the Activity Calendar below.
For questions regarding the review of course/instructor information and the Admin Panel, or to be trained to use the Admin Panel, contact Gina Calzaferri, Director, Assessment & Evaluation.
