Course Evaluation

Students and faculty will use the BlackBoard Course Management System for end-of-course evaluations. At the end of each term, students receive emails encouraging them to log into BlackBoard or click the link in their email to participate in a brief survey about their course experience. These surveys are completely anonymous, and it is important for all students to fill these surveys out for each of their courses, each semester.

In addition to the standard survey, departments and instructors are encouraged to implement additional surveys to better meet their needs using BlackBoard’s survey tool, through Qualtrics, via paper and pencil, or whatever other method is preferred. Be sure to contact the Office of Learning Technology or the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs if you would like advice or assistance in this process. Faculty may develop specific items appropriate to their disciplines and courses, or draw from the pool of 100 questions developed by the Faculty Senate.
