Teaching surveys begin April 2, so now is the time to start planning for the survey period! Here are some tips from the Office of Measurement and Evaluation of Teaching to get you and your students prepared.
- You may customize your survey by adding questions. Check our Question Library for a comprehensive list of custom questions you can add to your survey.
- Plan now to allow class time for students to take the survey. Look for days and times between April 2 and April 22 to give students the opportunity to complete their surveys.

The University of Pittsburgh renewed its participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) this month, which allows Pitt to enroll students from all 50 states (and more) into its online programs. While the full impact of joining SARA can not be calculated until the end of this academic year, Pitt Online has already set a new high mark with out-of-state enrollments in just the fall and spring terms.
