The Student Learning Experience survey (SLE) offers students and instructors the opportunity to work together to improve the quality of teaching at Oregon State University. This process was known as the electronic Student Evaluation of Teaching (eSET) from 2012-2021 and the SET from 2004-2012.
Through SLE, instructors are able to ask students for input on their teaching methods in a personalized fashion that goes beyond the set of standard university questions. Students are then invited to provide feedback on their learning experience to their instructors in a convenient and confidential manner. The SLE is aligned with the Quality Teaching Framework adopted by the Faculty Senate in 2021.
Accessing the System
Students, faculty, and certain departmental and college staff are able to access SLE by logging into MyOregonState and selecting the appropriate menu options. SLE can also be directly accessed here by logging in using an ONID username and password.
How the System Works
After the course withdrawal deadline, information regarding courses, instructors, and students is uploaded from Banner to the SLE system. Instructors are then invited to add any additional questions to the standard set of university questions. Students are invited via email or Canvas to begin the survey process.
Following the end of the survey period and after final grades are due, reports are generated. Once this process has been completed, instructors are informed via email that reports are available. Certain administrative staff from academic departments, colleges, and campuses are also able to view reports for their specific programs.
For 2021-2022, SLE will use the same software platform that OSU used for eSET.
