SPTE Procedures and Documents

The Student Perception of Teaching Effectiveness (SPTE) has been used as the official evaluation instrument on campus for a number of years for traditional face to face classes. It is norm based to be used for both evaluative and improvement purposes. The SPTE is also used at Wichita State University (WSU) and includes both questions (bubble sheet) and a sheet for student comments.

After the completion of the evaluation period in fall and spring, PSU returns the completed evaluations to WSU for processing and creating results.

After selecting your class (es) to be evaluated, click “Submit” – otherwise, your requests will not be saved. Immediately afterwards you will receive an email confirmation of your request. If you do not receive an email, your request was not processed.

The Social Science Research Lab at WSU provides a host of information explaining the layout of the results sheet, the statistical techniques used, and how to interpret the results.
