Student Feedback Instrument (SFI)

A Student Feedback Instrument (SFI) is the means by which students provide feedback on instruction at Red Deer Polytechnic.

Student feedback shall be obtained from students in each course using the instrument approved by the Faculty Performance Committee. Non-instructional faculty members shall receive feedback from students in small groups, workshops or classes conducted using an instrument approved by the Faculty Performance Committee. The Dean and faculty member shall both receive a summary of all data from the prescribed student feedback instrument each term.

Student Feedback Instrument (SFI) for credit courses will be administered after 75% of a course has been completed. SFI results will be available to instructors on the scheduled SFI Report release date providing final grades have been submitted.
