Faculty Senate Committee, ITS evaluating replacement tool for SEI and eSEI

The Teaching and Assessment Committee (TAC) and ITS recently invited faculty to observe demonstrations and ask questions about two products that are being considered as replacement for WVU’s student evaluation of instruction (SEI) tool. EvaluationKIT and Blue highlighted their intuitive structures and ability to customize surveys and generate a wide array of reports. That includes the ability to produce reports comparing specific student populations, such as seniors versus underclassmen, without identifying the respondents.

SEI was developed in-house at a time when few commercial packages were available. The lead developers who knew the system design and provided technical support no longer work at WVU, and a number of commercial products now offer more functionality and user-friendly interfaces.

After a final product is selected, a small group of faculty will pilot the new tool later this summer. The new evaluation tool is expected to be more widely available during the fall semester.
