Reminder if you forget
Which courses get evaluated?
- Courses with 6+ enrolled
- Smaller classes if requested by the instructor
- Specific courses (generally internships and independent study) may be excluded per the college Dean
When is it?
- Regular Semester: During the 14 days prior to first day of finals
- Short and Summer Semesters: During the seven days prior to course end date in WebAdvisor
- Courses with Odd End Dates: During the 14 days prior to course end date in WebAdvisor
How do I get it?
- Students will receive an email invite in your CCU email account from “Course Evaluations.”
- Students will receive only one invite per date grouping (Regular Fall, Fall II, etc.).
- A link in the email takes you to a list of all your evaluated courses in that date grouping.
- If you haven’t completed the evaluations after the halfway mark you’ll get a reminder.
How do I take it?
- Open the survey on any internet-enabled device: smart phone, tablet, laptop, etc.
- After submitting an evaluation for each course, the survey links back to an updated list of courses until all are complete. Distance-learning courses get additional dlstance-specific questions.
- It’s OK if your instructor wants to complete evaluations during class time, as long as they’re out of the room until you’re finished.
Is it confidential?
- Results are 100 percent anonymous. Instructors see only a collective response from all students who took course evaluations; the system doesn't allow instructors to connect ANY quantitative responses with an individual student.
- Results are confidential unless you choose to identify yourself in them, the same goes for written comments.
- No one can see any responses until grades have been finalized.
How is it used?
- Evaluations are used by instructors to improve their courses and teaching.
- Evaluations are used by department chairs and administrators to evaluate instructors' performance.
Why should I do it?
- Speak up, be heard and and shape your University!
- Your feedback is vital to continually improving CCU and letting instructors know what works (and what doesn’t).
