Instructor Reports

To view your reports, click the PDF and/or Excel icon under the heading "Ratings, Comments, Responses and Instructor Report". Each course will show both eSET and SLE reports. For terms from Fall 2021 forward, choose reports with SLE in the title. For terms prior to Fall 2021, use the reports without SLE in the title. Q1 and Q2 will appear for all course reports until further notice.

Department or College Reports

(Note: the following reports may be located by clicking on the "Menu" button at the top of the Home page)

  • Report Browser - allows you to view and/or pull individual instructor reports, or to selectively view or batch reports by instructor, course, or department.
  • Raw Data - can be provided via request to [email protected] for a single department or college. It does not include student comments. The format is XML, which allows easy import into Excel or other programs.
  • Rollup Reports - allows you to run reports by course level by school, unit, and/or course. 

View our Accessing/Running eSET Reports pdf for instructions on running the various reports.

  • Term Responses - Dashboard offers graphs and summaries by department or college for a selected term. Note that in SLE, Colleges are called "Schools".

Reports are not available for the pandemic period

Administrative reports are not available for terms designated by the Faculty Senate and Provost’s office as blocked for COVID-19 accommodations, specifically AY 2020-21 (including Summer 2020, Fall 2020, Winter 2021, Spring 2021), Summer 2021, Fall 2021, and Winter 2022. For cumulative data reports, not specified by individual instructor, please contact [email protected]. Instructors can always view their reports for all courses surveyed or evaluated through their individual SLE portal.

Median Calculation

The median is the value on the score scale that separates the top half of the group from the bottom half. OSU uses a calculation that assumes that multiple values within a range are distributed evenly over the range.  A calculation of this type results in a more complete set of values.  (The traditional computation of median might result in values of 5.0, 5.5, 6.0.  The OSU calculation results in values 5.0, 5.1, 5.2, and so on to 6.0). This calculation has been used for OSU student evaluations since 2004.

There is a good detailed explanation with examples on page 33 of "Measurement and Evaluation in Psychology and Education", Fourth Edition, by Robert L. Thorndike and Elizabeth P. Hagen.
