Instructional Satisfaction Questionnaire (ISQ)
Also known as: ISQ

Instructional Satisfaction Questionnaire Are Online!

The University of North Florida evaluates all courses (with the exception of courses involving individual instruction such as independent studies (DIS), internships, and practica - see Collective Bargaining Agreement) using a standard instrument "Instructional Satisfaction Questionnaire" (ISQ). This ISQ evaluation instrument allows students to confidentially rate their UNF learning experience. Two days after the deadline for faculty grade submission, the ratings and feedback from course evaluations become available to UNF faculty and administrators. The information students supply in these evaluations is extremely important.

  • Faculty use information from course evaluations to improve their courses and teaching methods, and to determine whether course content is meeting the needs of their students.
  • Department chairs review course evaluation data to assess both their faculty, and the value of courses offered in their department.
  • University committees include course evaluation data as part of faculty reviews, to determine promotion and tenure.
  • Other students use the course evaluation ratings available to them, to choose courses to add to their schedule.

 

For these reasons, students are strongly encouraged to participate in the course evaluation online system. Student feedback matters!

 

How it Works 

Beginning Fall 2013, the University of North Florida will implement an online course evaluation system to replace the Scantron evaluation forms formerly in use. All courses will be evaluated using the online system each term, except those courses listed in the Collective Bargaining Unit as exempt ("courses involving individual instruction such as independent studies (DIS), internships, and practica shall be excluded from this form of evaluation").

 

Students are notified via their UNF e-mail when the online system opens, and are sent reminders during the evaluation period. Students log into the course evaluation system through Blackboard. Anonymity is protected, and access to the results tightly controlled through security permissions. During the evaluation period, students who have not completed their evaluations are sent e-mail reminders at days 1 and 8 and on each of the last 7 days of evaluation to log in and complete evaluations. See Student Information link for more.

 

The deadline for grades to be entered is the Tuesday after finals are over. After ALL grades are processed and we are confident grades have been submitted, the ISQ results are loaded into the FAIR system through MyWings immediately after. The FAIR ISQ results will include both the tabulated data and the written comments. Faculty are notified via e-mail when reports are ready for viewing. Faculty log into the system through MyWings and can refer to instructions on how to access ISQ results now available in the FAIR system at: www.unf.edu/isq/Online_ISQ_Results_in_FAIR.aspx .
