Faculty Senate eSET Decisions
On May 9, 2013, the Faculty Senate made the following decision regarding eSET:
- Evaluations will close at 8 a.m. on the Monday of the week following finals, priot to official grade posting period. (For more information on the issue, see the results summary of the eSET Timing Pilot Study conducted by APAA.)
On November 8, 2012, the Faculty Senate made the following decisions regarding eSET:
- Evaluations will NOT be collected for courses that have fewer than 6 students. (If you have cross listed/slash courses with fewer than 6, those will be collected and combined with the other cross listings for the course);
- Reports for slash/cross listings will be combined to preserve evaluation data (please refer to the website for the history on this matter http://oregonstate.edu/admin/aa/apaa/report-changes-2012 for additional details). Other options for having both combined and uncombined reports will be explored.
Baccalaureate Core eSET Courses: (speech, mathematics, fitness, and certain WIC)
Certain speech, mathematics, fitness and WIC Baccalaureate Core courses will have Bacc Core student learning outcome questions added to course evaluations as part of the larger category program review (not part of individual course evaluations). The following courses are participating: MTH 105, 111, 112, 211, 241, 245, 251, 251H; COMM111, 111H, 114, 114H, 218, 218H; HHS 231, 241, 245, 248, and PAC courses. WIC courses that will have the additional questions will be announced.

Unit Level Summary (Rollup) Reports Now Available
We have implemented a system whereby units may now obtain a variety of summary reports, including unit reports broken down by course level (e.g. 100, 200, etc.). Departmental access will be made available via current administrative permissions. For more information on available reports, go to: http://oregonstate.edu/admin/aa/apaa/eset/reports.
INTRODUCTION TO eSET
The OSU eSET (Electronic Student Evaluation of Teaching) system is an easy way for students to provide feedback to the teaching faculty about their learning experiences. Each term, students receive an email asking them to complete evaluations for their classes. They are allowed two weeks to complete the assessment for each of their courses and instructors.
Immediately following the deadline for students to withdraw from classes, current term courses, instructors, and students are extracted from the Student Information System and uploaded into eSET. Instructors are then asked to add any additional questions to the standard set of university questions. Students are then sent an email asking them to begin the evaluation process.
Students, faculty, and certain departmental and college staff are able to access eSET by logging into OSU Online Services and selecting the appropriate menu options. They can also directly access eSET by clicking here and logging in using either their ONID username and password or their OSU ID and GAP. If they have difficulty accessing eSET, they should check the browser settings to make sure pop-up windows are not blocked; try using a different browser; or clear the java cache.
Following the end of the evaluation period, several days are needed to generate the summary reports. Once that is done, an email will be sent to instructors informing them they can view their reports. Certain administrative staff from academic departments, colleges, and campuses will also be able to view reports for their specific programs. In addition to viewing the results in HTML or PDF, they can download them into an Excel file.
