Opportunity to include an additional item/question in the SELT survey

Published: Wednesday 11th January 2017

There is an opportunity to include an additional item/question for the Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching (SELT) survey for units that are offered for the following study periods of 2017: Summer Term, Trimester 1 and Professional Term 1.

The ‘Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching’ (SELT) survey was implemented University-wide in 2015 and the SELT survey replaced both the Student Evaluation of Unit (SEU) and Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) surveys that were conducted previously.

SELT surveys are conducted for all coursework units with 10 or more students (i.e. staff do not have to request for such surveys) in accordance with the Evaluation of Learning and Teaching Policy and related Procedures.

In addition to the SELT core items (rating-type questions) that will be automatically included in the survey, each teaching staff member (lecturer/tutor) has the opportunity to include one additional item of their own composition in relation to their teaching in a unit.

Personalised email invitations to write an additional item/question for the SELT surveys have already been sent to staff members, who have been confirmed as teaching in unit(s) that are offered during the following study periods of 2017:

  • Summer Term (201705)
  • Trimester 1 (201732)
  • Professional Term 1 (201707)

The opportunity to include an optional additional item/question in SELT survey will close on Monday 23 January 2017.

With regards to personalised email invitations, one of the following situations applies to each ACU staff:

Situation A: If you received an email invitation sent from Evaluations.LTC@acu.edu.au, it means:

  • Your name has been verified by your respective Faculty or School nominee for online surveys of units/teaching.
  • Your details are available in the staff directory maintained by Human Resources.
  • The number of students enrolled in the Banner unit was found to be at least 10.

Situation B: If you did not receive an email invitation, then the criteria listed in Situation A were not met.

Situation C: If you received the email invitation and you are not teaching in a unit that is shown on the ‘Evaluations’ block in LEO front page, please inform Evaluations.LTC@acu.edu.au immediately, so that we can remove your name from the specific survey(s) before students are invited to complete the surveys.
