Focus Search - Chapman, North Carolina State University © 2014 STANDARD EVALUATIONS OF TEACHING (SETS) Used by nearly all institutions of higher education Questions and interpretation are often suspect Students asked to fill out 10 or more in a semester Some questions are less applicable to certain courses Serve dual purposes (course improvement and RPT) High stakes for instructors (incentive for positive results) Online delivery shows response rates steadily decreasing Low response rates lead to invalid results RESPONSE RATES AND SETS •  Online SETs usually start at about 60% and soon drop off to 30-40% •  30% response rate in a class of 20 is only 7 students •  Little motivation for students to fill them out •  The more the student cares about the issue, the most like he or she is to fill it Bottom line: non-response and low response rates are problems for end-of-course evaluations in higher education INCENTIVES TO INCREASE RESPONSE RATES •  Pressure to increase response rates validity in the RPT •  Some incentives have ethical issues •  Mixed evidence on the efficacy of incentives to increase response rates What are best ways to increase response rates in a way that does not bias the results?
