The Baccalaureate Core Committee and the office of APAA coordinate with units to use the electronic Student Evaluation of Teaching (eSET) to gather indirect evidence of student learning in Baccalaureate Core skills categories in the year prior to their review.
- eSETs have already been collected for the 2013-14 Baccalaureate Core Category review. For units who wish for the eSET Bacc Core questions to continue, the questions will remain. For all other courses the questions will be removed.
College of Engineering WIC courses in the 2014-15 will have questions added to their eSETs beginnning in the Fall 2013. DPD courses will be contacted in the Fall regarding additional eSET Bacc Core questions that can be added in the Winter.
What should instructors do?
There is no need for instructors to take any action. The questions will be automatically added to the participating courses. Instructors will still be able to add their own individual questions to course evaluations.
The results will be independently processed by the Academic Programs, Assessment and Accreditation (APAA) Office and then distributed as aggragate data to the Baccalaureate Core Committee, faculty and unit heads.
- The eSET data will NOT be used in individual course reviews during the Bacc Core Category review process.
- Individual instructors will NOT be identified in data that are used in the review.
Baccaluareate Core Committee
The Bacc Core Committee will ONLY receive aggregated data from the eSET. The data will be aggregated such that individual instructors are not identifiable.
eSETs are NOT used in any aspect of the individual course reviews during the Bacc Core Category reviews.
Faculty will receive the results of the additional Bacc Core questions on their eSET reports. Hopefully student responses to these questions will provide some insight into the student perceptions on their learning related to the outcome. Faculty may choose to include eSET data as part of their review, but are not required to do so.
Because the questions fall under the “quantitative” category as Likert Scale questions, the student responses to the Bacc Core SET questions will show up on the individual faculty reports that unit heads receive.
