Online SAI How To's for Faculty

Faculty and Student FAQ

ETSU's Student Assessment of Instruction (SAI) process helps faculty adjust and improve their teaching in light of students' perceptions and experiences in courses. Both the Tennessee Board of Regents and ETSU require all faculty with teaching assignments to participate in SAIs, and faculty applying for tenure or promotion must provide SAI data.

In fall 2013 ETSU begins online administration of student assessment of instruction (SAIs) in undergraduate and graduate courses. We have contracted with ConnectEdu to use its CoursEval system to host our SAI process.

Benefits of online SAIs for students, faculty and staff:

• Online course evaluations are completely anonymous.

• Students can complete SAIs on their own computers or mobile devices and in ETSU computer labs.

• Faculty and administrators will receive SAI data two days after the deadline for submitting final grades.

• Faculty and administrators will have continuous access to SAI results from all previous terms in which ETSU administered SAIs online.

• Online SAIs save countless hours of work by department executive aides, deans' offices, and other staff.
