Scholarship & Research
"IDEA" is the chosen measure of student feedback used at Franciscan University of Steubenville. This section of the ASPIRE Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership provides, a) information to the faculty about the forms, directions, and administration of the IDEA, b) interpretation of the instrument, as well as c) construction of IDEA. Research is displayed to communicate the validity of the instrument to faculty. The IDEA is one of many factors that is examined in conjunction with the teaching portion of the faculty appraisal process and is used to give faculty feedback on their teaching in the hope of improving instruction.
