Student Instructional Rating Survey Results
The Student Instructional Rating Survey (SIRS) is a University-wide survey of students for their comments about their experiences in the classroom. The results are used by the individual instructors, departments, schools and the University for the assessment and improvement of teaching. Faculty members are asked to provide summaries of the student survey statistics for personnel decisions, such as tenure, promotion or merit-based pay. SIRS is conducted at the end of every semester by the Center for Teaching Advancement and Assessment Research.
Data from Spring 2001 and on, Fall and Spring semesters only. SIRS results for semesters prior to Spring 2001 are available on CD-ROM at the Rutgers Libraries. SIRS results for the most recent semester will be published approximately 10 – 12 weeks after the end of the semester, e.g., Fall results are published in late March.
Department Administrators should use the SIRS Results Archive.
*Please be advised that the University Counsel has determined that posting Student Instructional Rating Survey information for Teaching Assistants must cease as of Fall 2004 because of the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99). Therefore no records for any Teaching Assistants will be available on this site as of Fall 2004 and for future terms.
We are actively working on improving this site.
