Students Get a Chance to Grade Faculty

Student evaluation of instruction begins Wednesday and will continue through Friday, Nov. 30. All evaluations are being conducted electronically, through the Class Climate system.

Students will receive an email for each course in which they are enrolled, containing a link to a brief evaluation survey. Links to the same surveys will also appear on each student’s Moodle home page – not on course Moodle pages.

Students can access the survey from either the link in the email or the link on Moodle. The system automatically emails the student a receipt for each survey he completes.

Students who complete all their surveys will be automatically entered in a raffle and will be eligible to win:

• one of five on-campus parking spaces for Spring 2013 or
• one of 10 gift certificates, each worth $100, for University Bookstore.

If a student accesses the surveys from a smart phone, Class Climate will automatically detect the device and format the survey accordingly, making it easy for students to take the surveys directly on their smartphones.

Results will be analyzed and reported electronically – with no identifying student information – by the Office of Institutional Research, after grades have been submitted. Results are completely anonymous and will be provided to each instructor and his or her department head and dean.

Student evaluation of instruction is one of the university’s most important ways to improve the quality of instruction. Faculty members read the evaluations.  Deans and department heads read them, too, and take them into consideration in yearly merit evaluations and for tenure and promotion decisions.

For more information, contact the Office of Institutional Research at (337) 482-6863.
