Downloading Department SIRS Reports

For courses where the Student Instructional Rating Survey was done online, we are distributing the summary statistics and comments through Sakai. The instructions below for downloading the files apply only to the surveys that were conducted using the new online system. Results for surveys conducted on paper will be sent via campus mail later in the year.

Please download and save the files to a department computer. We will delete the files from Sakai by the end of the semester in preparation for the next survey period.

Instructors receive their individual reports by email. The complete collection of files is available only to the authorized contact person for the department. It is the responsibility of that person to distribute the files as needed within the department. If you need to change or appoint someone for your department or need other corrections, please contact OTEAR at 932-7466 or at please replace "brokenaddress" with
