IASystem™ Course Summary Reports provide instructors with student feedback to develop and improve instruction. Reports are generated at the end of each academic term, and include the number and percentage of students who chose each response option, as well as the average (median) response for each item and a decile rating based on institutional norms.
IASystem™ Hi-Low Reports assist administrators in allocating resources and support. These reports are generated at the end of each academic term, and list courses that received especially high or low average ratings (greater than 4.6 or less than 3.0, respectively) for a particular term. The reported averages are means of course medians and are presented for selected items from all forms with the exception of Form J.
IASystem™ Annual Reports provide Deans and Chairs with an overall summary of student ratings of instruction by course level and faculty rank, and consist of two related reports. The Ratings Summary reports average ratings by course level on selected items. The reported averages are means of course medians and are presented for each college, sub-college, if applicable, and department. The Survey List displays courses that were evaluated during the past year (and so included in the Ratings Summary).
IASystem™ Custom Summary Reports contain the same information as IASystem™ Course Summary Reports, but are based on combined ratings from many courses. Ratings from several courses may be combined for a particular instructor in decisions regarding promotion and tenure. An overall estimate of instruction in a particular department can be obtained by combining ratings for all courses taught during a particular time period. To request a combined report, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
