The City University of New York rules and regulations require that students be given the opportunity to evaluate the quality of instruction provided in each of their courses. The purpose of the Student Course and Faculty Evaluation is to provide a survey instrument for the collection of student feedback on the quality of instruction. This feedback is used as one of several methods of assessing teaching effectiveness when making personnel decisions regarding promotion, tenure, and merit pay.
The Student Course and Faculty Evaluation survey has several characteristics, which make it a useful assessment. First, it is applicable to a wide variety of instructional settings and focuses on dimensions of teaching performance that are generally acknowledged as being important. Second, the content of the questionnaire and certain aspects of the administration are standardized. Third, an instructor’s scores on a global question can be compared with those of others teaching similar courses.
