Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness (SETE) Available On-line During April 19 – May 14, 2010

Click here for the SETE participation.

What is the SETE?
  • The Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness (SETE) is a valuable tool to help UNT attain teaching excellence. It contains a 12 item survey which collects the student’s view of teaching effectiveness and examines the following three dimensions of teaching:
  1. Does the instructor present the material in a clear and organized manner;
  2. Does the instructor create a good environment for learning;
  3. Does the instructor help students become self-regulated learners.
  • In addition to the 12 items, students will provide their opinions about the instructor and class.
  • This evaluation is anonymous. Instructors will only get an overall score and scale scores (the weighted responses, of course not individual response) for each of the three domains.
When will the SETE be administered?
Administration of SETE begins Monday, April 19, 2010 and will be available through Friday, May 14, 2010.

How will students access the SETE?
  • A “pagelet” appears on the my.unt.edu which instructs the student to click on the URL for the SETE;
  • The student will complete their logon for the SETE web site;
  • The student receives a list of their currently enrolled courses and selects one course at a time for SETE evaluation; and
  • Each step is a new web page (i.e., after completing the first four questions that measure the first factor, a new page will automatically appear for the next four questions that measure the second factor, etc…) for that class.
Will students have the paper-version of teaching evaluation in addition to the SETE?
No, the SETE is the only evaluation for this semester. Participation in the SETE is critical for future teaching improvement.
