The new individual section report includes item means and frequencies for each participating course section in a department. To help put the results for a particular course section into context, the new report also includes comparison group means at the department, school/college, and campus level.
A brief description of the individual section report is below. For more information and help interpreting results, download the document Interpreting SRTI Results: A Guide for Instructors.
REPORT HEADER: At the top of each page you will find the semester and year in which forms were collected, instructor name, department, course and section numbers, and class number. This section also indicates how many students returned a SRTI form, how many were enrolled in the course, and the response rate. If the response rate is below 50%, a warning indicating such is printed on the report.
ITEM FREQUENCIES (PAGE 1): SRTI item frequencies are reported on Page 1 in addition to self-reported demographic data for the students who completed the SRTI form (elective vs. required status, class level distribution, and expected grade).
ITEM MEANS (PAGE 2): On the second page, we report the course section item means, as well as comparison group means at the department, school/college, and campus level for all courses in the same class level and enrollment category as the section being evaluated (e.g., undergraduate sections with 120 or more enrolled). The instructor and comparison means are displayed in a bar chart at the bottom of the page.
The comparison group means are calculated from combined SRTI data for the three most recent academic years (e.g., 2006-2008 for Fall 2009 SRTI) and are only reported if there are ten or more sections with SRTI data available.
The comparison group data do not include courses that are fewer than 2 credits, noncredit labs or discussions, independent study, practicum, or dissertation sections, and applied music courses or music and dance ensembles.
