For Summer Session 2, you may distribute SOOTS July 19 to August 9, 2018.
If there are any other persons that you have enrolled in your myCourses 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. Inform your students that the survey is anonymous and that faculty members only see the aggregated results after they have submitted final course grades.
Results: Please see above schedule. You will need to go into my.binghamton.edu to access and print your SOOT results.
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 only use #2 pencils 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 # FILLED IN on each bubble sheet.
Completed surveys must be returned to the Computing Services Help Desk within 24 hours.
DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR PERSONAL DEPARTMENT SURVEYS IN WITH THE SOOT SURVEYS.
Results will become available after the above dates. You will need to go into my.binghamton.edu to access and print your SOOT results. Hard copies of SOOT results are not sent.
