SET surveys are used to improve courses through teaching performance and substance and as a form of evaluation for instructors. These reviews are meant to help instructors recognize how they can improve their teaching. This helps professors better do their jobs and students who will take the same class in the future. The surveys also significantly impact the careers of instructors, teaching assistants in particular. If students were better informed of the significance of these surveys, the response rate would likely increase.
