Student Instructional Rating Survey Results

The Student Instructional Rating Survey (SIRS) is a University-wide survey of students for their comments about their experiences in the classroom. The results are used by the individual instructors, departments, schools and the University for the assessment and improvement of teaching. Faculty members are asked to provide summaries of the student survey statistics for personnel decisions, such as tenure, promotion or merit-based pay. SIRS is conducted at the end of every semester by the Office of Teaching Evaluation and Assessment Research.

*Results include data for Fall and Spring semesters only. SIRS results for semesters prior to Spring 2001 are available on CD-ROM at the Rutgers Libraries. SIRS results for the most recent semester will be published approximately 10 – 12 weeks after the end of the semester, e.g., Fall results are published in late March.

The Student Instructional Rating Surveys are used a part of the teaching evaluation process, along with peer observation, teaching portfolios, and other direct and indirect measures. The student opinions reflected here are an important part of a larger process.
