Request spring student surveys soon
It’s time to request Student Opinion of Teaching surveys for the spring semester.
To request SOOT online, go to http://blackboard.binghamton.edu. Once there, enter your username and password. (Your username is your e-mail address excluding the “@binghamton.edu” portion and your password is your normal Blackboard password. If you have never logged into Blackboard, your initial password is the first 2 letters of your last name and the last 4 digits of your social security number.)
From the list of Tools on the left side of the page, click on SOOT Surveys. Click on the courses you want surveyed and hit Request Surveys.
Your students will then use Blackboard to respond to the SOOT survey between April 20 and May 11. If anyone else has been given the role of “Instructor” for your course in Blackboard, he or she will also have opportunity to request a SOOT survey. Results will be available May 25 via Blackboard.
To request paper survey forms, go to:
https://spider.adm.binghamton.edu:6128/soot/sootform.cgi. Once you have requested forms, print the confirmation and instruction sheet for use when administering the SOOT. Your forms will be delivered within three or four working days. This Web site will be available now through May 11. It will take about six weeks to receive results if you choose the paper method.
If the instructor of the course you are teaching is listed as “Staff” in BUSI, you will not be able to request a SOOT survey. Your department will need to contract the Registrar’s Office and update the information in the BUSI system.
If you have questions about using Blackboard, call the Help Desk at 777-6420. If you have questions about using paper SOOT forms, call the Office of Institutional Research and Planning at 777-2365.
