“I found that Stuart seemed to be complacent about this unit, his lectures where not worth turning up too, as it involved sitting there listening to him talk from the unit guide, which I did by myself at home anyway.”

Student evaluation of teaching set

Student evaluation of teaching (SET)

Work by Ramsden and others in the 1980s (re-)established a link between student perceptions of their learning environment and:

  • the level of their engagement with their

    studies; (hence, generally,)

  • the ‘quality’ of their learning/outcomes


What is quality

  • Writes in space?

Student evaluation of teaching

Student evaluation of teaching

Reflecting the modern understanding of the multi-faceted nature of quality and the finding that it is the entirety of the university experience that contributes to the student ‘course experience’, virtually all authors examining the value of the SET process recognise that SET data are only one of many sources of information that should be called upon when evaluating teaching

Evaluation of teaching

Evaluation of teaching

Other valuable data sources include:

  • objective measures of student learning (such as unit marks)

  • reflective (self) assessment of teaching performance (what worked, what didn’t)

  • peer assessment of teaching

  • student focus groups

Interpreting setu

Interpreting SETU

USA Today has come out with a new survey - apparently, three out of every four people make up 75% of the population

David Letterman


Interpreting setu1

Interpreting SETU

  • a reasonable number of responses;

  • a reasonable overall response rate; and

  • a reasonably equal rate of responses

    between campuses

    …provide some confidence that the survey sample is representative


Consistency

Consistency

  • a small standard deviation on a mean item rating indicates that most respondents were in agreement

  • a large positive difference between the proportion of agreement and disagreement indicates that substantially more students agreed

  • if the written open-ended comments reveal common, repeated themes, these are worthy of further investigation

  • etc.


Discrepancy

Discrepancy

  • a small number of ratings that are different from the majority can influence the reported mean

  • a small number of adverse comments that seem at odds with the majority of written feedback are probably not worth losing a lot of sleep over

  • a rating in one item that is significantly different from the others in the SETU results for the same unit might be an indicator worth investigating further

  • etc.


Interpreting setu in general

Interpreting SETU – in general

SETU is only one measure of the ‘quality’ of teaching

SETU is a pretty blunt instrument

Used in an rational manner, the quantitative and qualitative results from SETU can be an aid in the evaluation of teaching and learning


Interpreting setu in general1

Interpreting SETU – in general

The larger the number of responses, the more reliable the data

Trends (as long as they are real) can be informative

Using setu

Using SETU

The circumstances, context and influences on a particular unit are individual in nature

Standard, boilerplate responses probably aren’t that useful

SETU might offer some insights of value
