Student Rating of Teaching Effectiveness (SRTEs)

The Student Rating of Teaching Effectiveness (SRTEs) are Penn State's locally developed instrument for gathering feedback from students at the end of the term. The SRTEs were approved by the University Faculty Senate in 1985 and are administered by the Office of the Vice Provost of Academic Affairs.

The Schreyer Institute manages the SRTE process and helps facilitate appropriate use of SRTE data.
