Student Evaluations of Teaching Update

Since spring 2020 all student evaluations have been administered online. Initial response rates dipped after the move to online (see table below), but this was also likely influenced by the COVID-19 move to remote instruction. Response rates rebounded in fall 2020 and spring 2021 but remained slightly lower than pre-pandemic rates. Response rate reports with data disaggregated by course level and course components can be found on the OIRA website (bottom of page).
