However, it’s important that students have a say about the quality of the instruction they get. Data from the SEQ can provide an excellent insight into the current effectiveness of an instructor and the courses they deliver. When student evaluations of teaching are done regularly, the quality of the educational experience improves for both the instructor and the students. ......
