The Student Instructional Rating Surveys (SIRS) transition from using Sakai surveys to our new software "eXplorance Blue” is currently underway at the university with a number of programs on board for the Fall 2018 cycle. Rutgers University–Newark courses will be transitioning to this tool in Spring 2019 so we welcome you to join us for a demonstration provided by our colleagues from the Center for Teaching Advancement & Assessment Research (CTAAR) on:

December 12, 2018 from 10:30-11:30am in Conklin Hall 449

Blue will provide us with a streamlined process for updating course and instructor information, the ability to add department-wide questions or target individual courses, flexibility with survey dates and survey recipients, and improved reporting and analysis. For more information on Blue check out: https://ctaar.rutgers.edu/sirs/blue. Blue will also be integrated into Blackboard which should increase our return rates.
