The student course evaluation administered through the Perceived Teaching Effectiveness (PTE) process is coordinated by the Office of Faculty Affairs and Development for stateside courses. PTE's are scheduled for every fall and spring semester.

Campus policy requires that:

  • All full-time non-probationary (tenured) faculty members select one (1) course each semester. 
  • Full-time probationary (tenure-track) faculty are encouraged to designate at least two (2) courses per semester. 
  • Part-time faculty do not receive PTE selection forms. All courses taught shall be evaluated. 

All course evaluations are administered via the online PTE portal. Students will be notified via e-mail from the Office of Faculty Affairs and Development to complete the course evaluations. Students have access to complete their course evaluations from any desktop computer and mobile devices. Faculty will also be notified via email prior to the start of evaluations. The PTE course evaluation reports will be released at the end of the semester after all grades have been submitted.

PTE's may be administered for stateside summer session courses based on the request of the College Dean. Faculty members teaching stateside summer courses will be notified of the evaluation schedule by the Office of Faculty Affairs and Development.
