Student Opinion of Teaching (SOOT) Forms

Here are the instructions for requesting your SOOTs.

Go to http://my.binghamton.edu/ and follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Academic Services tab.
  2. Click on the "SOOT Surveys" heading.
  3. Choose Online from the pull-down list for each course you want surveyed this semester and click "Save".

If you are an instructor and you do not see your courses listed, please check with helpdesk@binghamton.edu.

Once you have completed these steps the survey will become available for the students enrolled in your course three weeks before the last day of classes. Your students will use soot.binghamton.edu to respond to the SOOT survey during the surveying period, which ends on the last day of classes OR seven days after the date that you order the SOOTs, whichever is later. (No extensions can be granted.)

If anyone else has been enrolled in your myCourses course and has been 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 and you may find it helpful to give them time during a class period to complete the SOOT survey with their own device. You can inform your students that the survey is anonymous and that faculty members only see the aggregated results after final course grades have been submitted.

Results will become available 14-17 days after the SOOT due date. You will need to go into http://my.binghamton.edu to access or print your SOOT results.
