Student Ratings of Instruction

Starting with the Fall 2016 term, all academic departments will begin using EvaluationKit, an electronic Student Ratings of Instruction (SRI) collection tool, for the collection of SRIs. Paper-based processes for the collection of SRIs will no longer be supported. To review the process for how the decision was made to move from paper to electronic SRIs, go to the SRI Taskforce website.

Students will use EvaluationKit to submit electronic SRIs during the evaluation period listed in the chart below. Students can access the electronic SRIs in several ways:

1.  Through a link provided in an email message they will receive at the beginning of the evaluation period.

2.  By using the EvaluationKit mobile application. Instructions on how to use the mobile application can be found in the initial email communication students received.

3.  By visiting Blackboard Learn where students will be prompted to complete evaluations that are currently active or can access the link on the My Institution tab of Blackboard Learn

  • Subject Code “ATH” Courses (Intercollegiate Athletics Courses)
  • Subject Code “VUB” Courses (Veteran’s Upward Bound Courses)
  • Subject Code “MAT” (CCD Remedial Math Courses, evaluations are done by CCD)
  • Subject Code “STA” (Study Abroad Courses)
  • Schedule Type “K” Courses (Cooperative Education)
  • Schedule Type “N” Courses (Internship;Clinical Internship)
  • Schedule Type “D” Courses (Student Teaching)
  • Section Attribute CCCR Courses (e.g. PSY2, ENG2, ECO2, and others) (interinstitutional registration, evaluations are done at UCD/CCD home institution)
  • Any Math Peer Study / FYS Math Peer Study course with a course number: 0008, 0011, 0012, 0031, FY11, FY12, FY31

If you are teaching a class that meets on campus, please dedicate 15 minutes of class time for students to complete the electronic SRIs during this evaluation period. Remind students to bring a mobile device (e.g., laptop, tablet, smartphone) to class on the day you plan to dedicate time for the SRI collection. While your students are completing the electronic SRIs, be sure to step outside of your classroom to provide adequate privacy. If any students forget to bring a mobile device, encourage them to visit a nearby computer lab to access the electronic SRI. A list of computer labs can be found at: https://www.msudenver.edu/studentlabs/hoursofoperationandlocations/

If you are teaching a UCD/CCD pooled course, ask UCD/CCD students enrolled in your course to check their MSU Denver e-mail for the electronic SRI link. Alternately, UCD/CCD students will be able to access the electronic SRI through Blackboard Learn. We will work with UCD and CCD to ensure that all of the information necessary to access MSU Denver systems is provided to these students before the evaluation period. However, if a student cannot access the MSU Denver systems, please refer the student to the ITS Helpdesk at 303-352-7548 or support.msudenver.edu.

Finally, please be sure to explain the purpose of SRIs to your students and emphasize that their responses will assist in continuous improvement of MSU Denver courses. If you have any questions, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 303-352-7548 or support.msudenver.edu.
