IDEA's Student Ratings of Instruction (SRI) are designed to provide formative feedback that gives suggestions for improvement while providing summative feedback that can be used as a component of a more comprehensive system of faculty evaluation. The SDSU Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning has developed resources to support faculty in their efforts related to IDEA-SRI.
CETL staff is always available to consult with faculty and graduate teaching assistants as they interpret and integrate the feedback received from IDEA-SRI into their practice.
Using IDEA-SRI Results to Strengthen Teaching Practices
This workshop reviewed and interpreted the IDEA reports with special emphasis on how faculty can use the results to strengthen their teaching and classroom experience. This workshop was presented collaboratively by CETL and the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment.
