Module/Course evaluation by students
SET : Student Evaluation of Teaching
How do we know whether we are helping our students learn?
Student evaluation of teaching (SET) is a measure of a supervisor’s achievements in teaching, but it is effective as one form of measurement among many.
Just as students should be assessed often and in more than one way over the course of a program of study, our teachers are assessed in a variety of ways via student feedback. In addition, student feedback should be offered during the course of a module as a way of helping course supervisors gauge how a student is doing throughout his/her study of a module.
Our course evaluation is an electronic questionnaire, which requires a written or selected response answer to a series of questions in order to evaluate the instruction of a given course.
It is a means to produce useful feedback which our supervisors and faculty can use to improve their quality of instruction. The process of (a) gathering information about the impact of learning and of teaching practice on student learning, (b) analyzing and interpreting this information, and (c) responding to and acting on the results, is valuable for two important reasons.
- They are beneficial because supervisors can review how students view their teaching methods, thereby improving their instruction.
- The information can be also used by course co-ordinators to make formative recommendations (e.g., identify areas where a faculty member needs to improve)
Typically, these evaluations are combined with results of student’s test scores to create an overall picture of teaching performance.
All our SET questionnaires end up with two vital questions to the student:
- What aspects of the course/module do you; 1) enjoy and 2) not enjoy?
- What would you like to see done differently in the lesson?
