Objective Selections are completed by administrators or instructors for the IDEA Diagnostic Feedback and IDEA Learning Essentials evaluations.  Objectives can be set to Minor, Important, or Essential.  For information on selecting appropriate learning objectives, please see IDEA's resources here.

Instructor Completion of OSFs: 

Instructors will be notified by email to complete their OSFs for upcoming sections that are being evaluated. OSFs are available to be filled out up until the close date of an administration. After the administration window closes, selections will be available in a read only view. This will allow instructors to look back at previous semesters to review what they have selected.


Administrators can also monitor instructor completion of OSFs and send reminder mailings to instructors who have not completed their forms. 

Administrators will be able to view what objectives were chosen as relevant within the instructors Summative report.

Please note: If an Instructor has completed their OSF and their section has then been removed from an administration and placed in a new administration the Instructors sections will be removed and they will need to make their selections again.
