Can We Require SET Participation?

Dear Course Evaluation Office,

Can we require students to complete their teaching evaluations online before they can access their final grades to improve response rates?Thanks,
A Faculty Member

My Answer

Dear Professor,

Thanks for your question. Withholding, or allowing early access to view grades, is something we have talked about quite a bit in the 2N SET Committee, and it is a good idea with proven increased participation rates.

Unfortunately, the current SET policy indicates that student participation should be anonymous. Withholding grades would require us to know which students have participated in SET, and share that information with the Registrar.

The 2N committee continues to discuss this idea.
