The SET and SEC are evaluation instruments designed for teaching staff to obtain feedback from students. The SET is used by the teacher to gather information about their teaching style and performance as reflected in the responses of their students. The SEC is used to gather information about the students' opinion of the course content and structure. All teachers should request a SET, but only the course coordinator (or one member of a course design team) should request a SEC.
To initiate a SET and/or SEC Evaluation, you will need to complete a Student Evaluations Request Form (pdf, 952kb). To complete the form, fill in the following fields:
Submitting the form
Once all details have been entered into the online form press the SUBMIT button. You must complete the Evaluation Date and No. of Groups boxes (as highlighted in red) otherwise an error message will appear to alert you that this information is incomplete. An email window, with your request form attached, will appear after you press the Submit button. Please send the email to UBSurvey@ballarat.edu.au. Note that if an email window does not appear after you press the submit button then your request has not been processed correctly. A complete package of instructions and materials for conducting the evaluation will then be sent to you.
Administering the evaluation
Each of the SET and/or SEC packages contains a two-page set of instructions. Page one of these instructions provides the teacher with information about tasks which need to be undertaken before the Evaluation. Page two of these instructions provides the teacher with information about procedures to be followed on the actual day of the Evaluation. A copy of these instructions is provided below in the "Documents for download" section.
It is the responsibility of the Evaluation Supervisor to ensure that the evaluation is valid. Each of the three conditions must be met (box ticked) and the instruction form is to be signed where indicated. All of these conditions need to be met otherwise the results will not be processed.
Feedback of results
Once your evaluation has been returned, it will normally be processed within three weeks, and a report will be produced. You will receive the report in the mail as soon as it has been completed. Once the grades for the current semester have been officially released by the University, you will also receive the actual response sheets so that you can read the written responses.
Alternative SET and SEC Forms
Some Schools, or individuals, have developed alternative versions of SET and SEC for use with their students. SEEQ Unit staff will only provide processing and reporting support for official UB SET and SEC instruments and processes. All teaching staff should ensure that their teaching and course evaluation practices meet UB guidelines to enable the University to benchmark various aspects of learning and teaching processes across all campuses where UB courses are delivered.
