The College of Engineering utilizes student ratings as one of the bases for evaluating the teaching effectiveness of each of its faculty members. The results of these ratings are important data used in the process of awarding tenure, making promotions, and giving salary increases. In addition, the faculty members use the evaluation feedback to improve their own teaching effectiveness and programs use the data to assess achievement of a set of learning outcomes. The original request for the use of these forms camefrom students, and it is students who eventually benefit most from their use. Please take this task seriously, evaluate courses on-line, and respond as honestly and precisely as possible, both to the machine-scored items and to the open-ended questions. We appreciate your feedback.
