IDEA GROUP SUMMARY

IDEA Group Summary Reports (GSR) Request - combined information from a set of individual student ratings reports across a number of courses. The aggregated data are useful for identifying local norms and faculty development needs. In addition, the data can be useful in program assessment and accreditation. The Committee on Teaching Evaluation (CTE) is responsible for granting access to IDEA Group Summary Reports. IR&A submits the orders to IDEA and charges the requesting department. There are two types of requests the CTE has given standing permission.

1. Department Chairs may request any type of report as long as a minimum of three unique instructors are included in order to maintain anonymity.
2. Deans and Associate Deans may request a group summary for their entire College.

All other types of requests are forwarded to the Committee on Teaching Evaluation for consideration. The completed request will be forwarded to Institutional Research and Analysis for processing. The requesting department index code will be charged for each GSR ordered. IDEA Center charges $30 per report.
