Student Feedback Instruments (SFIs) are used at Red Deer College to collect student feedback on teaching (in SoTL literature, these are often referred to as SETs, Student Evaluations of Teaching).

The College uses the results of the SFIs to assess instructor performance and institutional effectiveness. Instructors use the results to improve the student learning experience.

For more information, visit the SFI page on the RDC website.
 

SFI Questions

The General Form Questions lists the SFI questions.

Please note: TVP and non-teaching faculty use different SFI versions which are currently under review by the Faculty Performance Committee.
 

Interpreting SFI Results

The Interpreting SFI Results Guide promotes balanced interpretation and consistent use of SFI feedback.
