    Department Rating Uncertainty Range

    Information Domains > Academic > Instructor Ratings > Instructor Ratings Glossary
    • Classification: Confidential (This classification is pending trustee approval.)

    A range calculated by statistically accounting for sampling and measurement error for all instructor ratings for classes taught under the specific department. For example, if the “Department” number is 4.1 and the range noted in the parenthesis is (3.6-4.6) you will conclude that the true measure of student perceptions of their experience in classes taught in that department is not an absolute 4.1, but that it falls somewhere on a range of 3.6-4.6.

    Instructor Rating

    Information Domains > Academic > Instructor Ratings > Instructor Ratings Glossary
    • Classification: Confidential (This classification is pending trustee approval.)

    As of Fall 2015, the instructor rating is the composite score of the five instructor questions on the student ratings questionnaire. This rating should not be reported without its accompanying uncertainty range. 

    Prior to Fall 2015 (with some exceptions in Winter 2015) this term was referred to as Overall Instructor Rating and was the mean of student responses to one question on the legacy student ratings instrument. 

    • Standard Field Name: instrctr_rtng
    • Note: Student Ratings before 2015 used an 8-point scale and included “Overall Course Rating” and “Overall Instructor Rating.” Beginning with some classes in Winter 2015 and all classes in Fall 2015, student ratings uses a 5-point scale and the Composite Instructor Rating is found in “Overall Instructor Rating.” For ratings in 2015, you can tell if the new student ratings system is being used if there is no value in the “Overall Course Rating” field.

    Instructor Rating Uncertainty Range

    Information Domains > Academic > Instructor Ratings > Instructor Ratings Glossary
    • Classification: Confidential (This classification is pending trustee approval.)

    A range calculated by statistically accounting for sampling and measurement error. For example, if the “Section” number for the course taught last semester is 4.1 and the range noted in the parenthesis is (3.6-4.6) you will conclude that the true measure of student perceptions of their experience in this class is not an absolute 4.1, but that it falls somewhere on a range of 3.6-4.6. In this case, the term "Section" groups together all sections taught at the same time, place, semester/term, and instructor as if they were one class.
