SOOT Forms:

(For a copy of these instructions in Adobe (.pdf) format, click here.

To request on-line SOOT using Blackboard or paper SOOT survey forms go to:
Once there, follow these simple steps:

1) Enter your PODS username and password to login to Blackboard.
2) From the list of Tools on the left side of the page, click on SOOT Surveys.
3) Choose paper or on-line from the pull-down list for each course you want surveyed and hit Request Surveys.

For on-line surveys:
Once you have completed these steps the survey will become available for the students enrolled in your course. Your students will use Blackboard to respond to the SOOT survey during the surveying period only (no extensions can be granted):  November 24th, 2015 to December 15th, 2015

If there are any other persons that you have enrolled in your Blackboard course and given the role of "Instructor", they will also have the opportunity to request a SOOT survey for their own assessment.

To maximize the number of responses, you will want to give your students several reminders. You may also wish to inform your students that the survey is anonymous and that faculty members see only the aggregated results after they have submitted final course grades.

Results will become available January 4th, 2016. You will need to go into Blackboard to access and print your SOOT results.

If you have any questions about using Blackboard, you can email or call Tami Regulski at (76145) during business hours.

For paper survey forms:
Once you have requested your forms, please print the confirmation and instruction sheet for use when administering the SOOT. Your forms will be delivered via campus mail within 3-4 working days. Please remember this required processing time when ordering. Be sure students use #2 pencils only to avoid rejection of your surveys during the scanning process. Also, please place completed surveys in the envelope they came in facing all the same way and with its unique assigned SOOT ID # FILLED IN on each bubble sheet.

Completed surveys must be hand delivered to the Computing Services Help Desk within 24 hours.


Results will be become available January 4th, 2016. You will need to go into Blackboard to access and print your SOOT results. Hard copies of SOOT results are not sent.

If you have questions about using paper SOOT forms, call the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (x72365).
