Student Evaluation of Faculty
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Quality Improvement processes student evaluations of faculty in many courses taught at Radford University. Every semester the Student Evaluation of Faculty is conducted to solicit students’ perceptions of their experiences in each course taken. The results of the evaluations are provided to respective Department Chairs and faculty members.
Students’ course evaluation results are important to faculty because the outcomes are used for faculty evaluation, tenure, and promotion decisions. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Quality Improvement analyzes the results and provides reports to academic departments.
Currently, Radford University utilizes online instruments for administering all course evaluations.
For additional information on student evaluations of faculty, see the Radford University Teaching and Research Faculty Handbook [PDF]. (Specifically page 14...188.8.131.52 Student Evaluations of Faculty)
