Instructional Satisfaction Questionnaire (ISQ) Final List


The Faculty Affairs Committee (FAC) reviewed the current items on the Instructional Satisfaction Questionnaire (ISQ). The Provost asked that the FAC review, revise, and make recommendations for changes to the ISQ. The goal is to reduce the number of items and revise ambiguous items.


The committee reviewed the previous items as well as suggested items by the committee. The committee retained 10 rating items (from 23) and 2 discursive items. Some of the items were revised from the previous version of the ISQ. Below is the final list of items recommended for the ISQ.

  1. My instructor communicated ideas and information effectively.
  2. My instructor was knowledgeable about the subject matter.
  3. My instructor was able to explain complex concepts and ideas clearly.
