Metrics conversion

UBC began transitioning away from reporting means and standard deviations for the numerical responses to the SEI surveys in 2018. Starting in 2020 only the new metrics (interpolated median, dispersion index, and percent favourable) appear on results reports.

For those preparing dossiers for reappointment, tenure, or promotion, either individual faculty members or their unit leaders can request that student survey data with the previous metrics be converted to the new metrics for inclusion in candidates files or heads’ letters. Please send requests to
