What is USRI?

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

Why USRI Surveys?

Results provide information to help with:

  • Evaluating instructor performance
  • Enhancing teaching methods
  • Selecting courses

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).
