There are several improvements to Student Evaluations of Instruction (SEOIs) this quarter.
1. Faculty can no longer see the names of students who have or have not responded to SEOIs, no matter how many responses there are.
2. The SEOI forms are shorter. Two open-ended text questions have been removed from each form.
3. SEOIs will only run for one week instead of two this quarter (May 27th through June 3rd). As soon as a student completes all of his/her SEOIs the Blackboard pop-up window and reminder emails will stop.
4. Students can now download the EvaluationKIT Android or Apple app to their tablets or cell phones. Tokens will be emailed to students. Once the tokens are installed the app will work as long as a student is enrolled at CWU. Students can complete SEOIs using this app.
Here is an example of an actual SEOI report: http://tinyurl.com/CWU-SEOI-Report
In January 2013, a student team completed an actual SEOI for a test course in order to understand the SEOI structure and process. Additionally, some team-members tested the EvaluationKIT mobile app on their Android or iOS smart-phones.

SEOIs – Your Feedback Really is Used
SEOIs play a key role in the annual, five year, and tenure review of faculty. They are also a key part of quarterly reviews of adjunct instructors. SEOIs are more likely to be taken seriously when response rates are high. Please take the time to complete SEOIs during the week of May 27th through June 3rd.
Thank you very much.
If you have any questions about the SEOI process or suggestions for improvement please contact:
