Online SIRS, Nov 19 through Dec 10

The Fall 2008 SIRS process is underway. Most courses will continue to receive packets in campus mail with the scannable survey forms. However, some courses will use our new online SIRS system. All School of Engineering courses are using the online surveys, as are a small number of sections in Psychology, Life Sciences, and the Writing Program.

The online version of SIRS will begin at 12:01 a.m. on November 19 and end at 11:59 p.m. on December 10.

Please see our Online SIRS page for more information about how the new system works. For general information, refer to our Student Instructional Rating Survey pages.

Visit of Dr. Richard Keeling, Nov 17

Register for the Keeling talk.

We are fortunate to have the opportunity for Richard Keeling to visit us in New Brunswick. Here is a link for a short bio.

On November 17, 2008, from 11 am to 1 pm in Meeting Room B of the Douglass Campus Center, Dr. Keeling will make a presentation on Assessment Reconsidered: Institutional Effectiveness for Student Success, the title of his new book. Lunch will be served in Meeting Room C afterwards.

Here is a short blurb on Dr. Keeling's new book:

Assessment Reconsidered: Institutional Effectiveness for Student Success
Richard Keeling, Andrew Wall, Ric Underhile & Gwen Dungy

Assessment Reconsidered: Institutional Effectiveness for Student Success promotes the shared ownership of assessment planning among faculty, student affairs educators, administrators, and students. As a project of the International Center for Student Success & Institutional Accountability (ICSSIA), Assessment Reconsidered focuses on the collaborative use of all campus resources in promoting student success. This illuminating work helps both student affairs professionals and faculty members address internal and public questions about the functioning of postsecondary institutions by reconsidering assessment policies, patterns, and practices in colleges and universities.
