What is Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET)?
UL's Centre for Transformative Learning provides a structured approach to getting feedback from students about individual approaches to teaching. This process is voluntary and confidential, and is designed to provide useful information to individual lectures on their students' experiences of the modules they teach. During the Autumn and Spring semesters the SET application process opens on Monday of week 2 and closes on Friday of week 3 (when SET is running).
All class evaluations are carried out online and take place between Week 4 and Week 10*. This is to ensure that you receive timely feedback which provides you with the opportunity to implement changes in your class should you wish to do so before the end of semester.

Our system allows you to access your Response Report as soon as your SET request has been sent to your students. You will be copied on this email and reminded one week into your survey to check your responses and encourage your students to respond. You will also receive an email asking you to refresh your application this will be received the Wednesday prior to your SET going live. It is very important that you click on the link in that email and refresh your application, this will ensure that all the students registered for your module are included in the SET request and reminders. Please note if your students do not use their UL email address you will need to forward this email to the email address they do access (this is not a service CTL can provide).
SET remains confidential at no point can you access details of who has responded to your survey and is offered in alternating semesters to the Module Satisfaction Survey (MSS) process.
