  • Tips to Increase Your Course Evaluation Response Rates.

    Communicate with your students to increase engagement.

    • Announce when the evaluation period will begin and give clear instructions.
    • Assure absolute 100 % confidentiality.
    • Explain how course evaluations benefit the student, the course and the institution as a whole.


    To ensure students complete evaluations, consider the following.

    • Send early reminders 2-3 weeks prior to the scheduled evaluation.
    • Give in class reminders reiterating the importance of student feedback and participation.
    • Give in class time to complete the survey. 

    Mid-term Surveys

    We recommend to help with course feedback that instructors send out mid-term surveys to your students to gain insight into what is working well and areas of improvement. Mid-term surveys can be done in the format of a simple survey using Blackboard or Google Forms.  Surveying your students regularly gets them use to the concept of filing out surveys and prepares them for the final course evaluation survey.

  • Monitor your response rates.

    The results of the evaluations are provided to the instructor as soon as possible after the submission of
    final marks. In addition, the results shall be made available to the following:

    • Curriculum committees and other review bodies/individuals: for purposes of curricular review;
    • Deans: for purposes of mentoring faculty, allocating merit pay and selecting candidates for teaching
    • awards; and
    • Tenure and promotion committees: for their mandated purposes.

    Faculties may decide to disseminate the results more broadly. The university encourages faculties to make
    quantifiable results available to students.

  • Are course evaluations the only assessment of an instructor's performance?

    Course Evaluation Assessment For Instructor's Performance

    The main purposes of seeking student evaluation of teaching are to assist faculty members in monitoring
    and developing their effectiveness as teachers and to assist faculties in monitoring the quality of their
    curricula. Important additional purposes include identifying professional development needs, assisting in
    decisions regarding tenure and promotion, assisting in identifying exceptional teachers for teaching
    awards and documenting exceptional teaching.

    On at least one occasion per course, feedback is provided to all instructors in the form of a universityapproved
    questionnaire, the results of which go to the faculty in the person of the dean to support
    curriculum review and tenure and promotion processes, and to the instructor. The university also strongly
    encourages instructors to make use of ongoing course evaluation and regularly to inform students of how
    previous feedback has led to modification in the teaching of the course. Courses in which seven students
    or fewer are enrolled need not be evaluated.
