What is the USRI?

Universal Student Ratings of Instruction (USRI) is the course evaluation survey used at the University of Calgary to collect student feedback on university credit courses.

Why USRI Surveys?

Results provide information that help:

  • Students with course selection
  • Instructor performance evaluations
  • Enhancing teaching methods

The University recognizes that "there should be regular and systematic evaluation" of courses, and that "students are an essential source of insight into effectiveness of educators." (USRI Reports and Recommendations, 1998).
