Student Ratings of Instruction



When you partner with IDEA, all of the tools in our SRI powered by Campus Labs are available to use.

  • Diagnostic Feedback - A comprehensive tool that provides both summative and formative feedback about student progress on relevant course objectives, instructor teaching methods, and overall impressions of the instructor and course.
  • Learning Essentials - Provides summative feedback about average student progress on relevant learning objectives and overall impressions of the instructor and course
  • Teaching Essentials - Provides formative feedback about teaching methods highly correlated with instructor and course excellence
  • Instant Feedback- A short instrument that gathers immediate student responses after each class or unit; weekly, or whenever desired, so faculty can see the impact of changes they have made in their class.

We've created this helpful chart to help determine which SRI Instrument to use for a particular course.

Every time I get the opportunity to speak about student ratings, I emphasize one three-word phrase and that is - student voice matters. They’ve got something to say.

As with all IDEA SRI instruments on our Campus Labs platform, students access the survey through the highly intuitive and easily-navigated online interface powered by our partners at Campus Labs.
