Development and Validation

History and Development

The Student Evaluation of Teaching form was revised during the 2016-17 academic year. The Teaching and Advising Committee (TEAC) reviewed and revised the content of the tool. The process called for the implementation of the key prior items, proposed new items and a set of items to serve as validation items. Two semesters of data (fall and spring) were collected and a validation study was undertaken. The results of the validation study were reviewed by Faculty Senate and University Administration. The revision was adopted and the validation items were dropped. The revised form is now currently in use.

If there are questions about the process or forms, please contact Dr. Dale Pietrzak in Institutional Effectiveness and Accreditation at
