Abstract: The online deployment of Technology Engineered online Student Ratings of Instruction [SRIs] by colleges and universitiesin the United States has dynamically changed the deployment of course evaluation. This research investigation is thefourth part of a post hoc study that analytically and psychometrically examines the design, reliability, and validity of theitems used in the delivery of an SRI instrument online during the 2012 Spring Semester at a United States Historical BlackCollege and University [HBCU]. The sample under analysis consisted of 7,919 distributed Student Ratings Instruments witha Grand Total of 56451 analyzed instrument items. The application of several statistical measures was used to validatethe Technologically Engineered SRI instrument used in the study. Results of the study included: a Cronbach's Alpha Testthat yielded an extraordinarily high internal consistency of the student rejoinders to the items on the rating scale; and aTri–Squared Test supported the research findings attributed to the Cronbach's Alpha Test results. This research is thecontinuation of in–depth investigations into Technology Engineering as discussed in i-manager's Journal on SchoolEducational Technology, further explored in i-manager's Journal of Educational Technology, and data analyzed with theTri–Squared statistical measure first introduced in i-manager's Journal on Mathematics.
