The TEVAL Student Rating System and Reports are facilitated by the Center for Advancement of Teaching and Learning at Kansas State University. In collaboration with OME, the paper TEVAL is now available in an online format. The first Online TEVAL was offered to students Fall 2006.
The TEVAL System is unique to K-State and is intended to provide an indicator of students' impressions of instructor effectiveness in teaching a given class. It may also provide some clues as to students' views of specific teaching practices. TEVAL Reports are confidential.
To facilitate a more accurate interpretation of the results, the TEVAL Report also summarizes some information that instructors may have provided about students and teaching context when they complete the TEVAL Faculty Information Form.
When using the electronic version, the individual faculty member is fully and solely responsible for creating the Online TEVAL. This system is fully integrated with K-State Online and only those listed as a primary instructor can survey their course. The system will generate an e-mail to each student in the course with a link to the actual evaluation.
- Approximately 20% of instructors switched from paper to Online TEVAL the first semester it was available
- Online TEVALs were used for 213 courses in Fall 2006
