Online Course Evaluations

Teaching at Oregon State University is an essential part of each instructor's responsibilities. Student responses to this questionnaire will help instructors identify quality teaching skills and methods or discover ways to improve their courses.

  • Please take the time to answer each question individually and add your comments in the text box:
    • questions 1 and 2 are used to compare across campus
    • questions 3-12 are comparative within the discipline
    • questions 13-19 collect demographic data
    • comments in the text box are seen by only the instructors
  • Instructors will carefully consider your comments. Also, supervisors for each faculty member or instructor will use this information to encourage teaching excellence.
  • Results of this form are anonymous and are not tabulated until after grades are posted.

Electronic Student Evaluation of Teaching

The Student Evaluation of Teaching system opens to students on Wednesday of week 8 and closes the following Sunday. Students will receive notification, instructions and the link through their ONID email. Responses are anonymous (unless a student chooses to “sign” their comments agreeing to relinquish anonymity) and unavailable to instructors until after grades have been posted. The results of scaled questions and signed comments go to both the instructor and their unit head/supervisor. Anonymous (unsigned) comments go to the instructor only.

If you experience difficulties while completing the Student Evaluation of Teaching (eSET), visit the student FAQs page.

If you have already completed your teaching evaluations, you may release the hold by going back into your eSET. This action triggers the manual Remove Hold feature now available in eSET. If you choose not to do so, the hold will still be released within one business day of your evaluations. Next term, please look for the Remove Hold feature now on eSET.
