Course evaluations are automatically scheduled for all courses with more than two students enrolled that are at least 14 days in length. The evaluations will be scheduled shortly after the last day to drop classes.
All evaluations will be scheduled with default start, reminder and end dates.
- For undergraduate courses, the start date will be three weeks before the end of the course and the end date will be six days before the end of the course.
- For graduate and seminary courses, the start date will be two weeks before the end of the course and the end date will be the same as the end date of the course.
Evaluations for undergraduates classes must end before final exams begin (that is, on the last day of classes). Evaluations for graduate and seminary classes must end by the last date of class. Evaluations must always end before posting of grades.
You may view and modify the dates associated with automatically scheduled course evaluations. You may also delete a scheduled course evaluation if the course should not be evaluated (for example, an independent study with three students enrolled, practica or internships, student teaching). Any modifications to the course evaluation dates must be done before the date you wish to change. For example, evaluations are automatically emailed to students on the default start date, so you cannot change the start date after that has occurred.
Everyone associated with courses as faculty or staff assistants still have access to their courses in the course evaluation portlet.
- Invitation email dates (consequently evaluation survey start dates) are limited to being sent no earlier than 30 days prior to the end of the course).
- Evaluation end dates are limited to being no later than 7 days after the end of the course.
Important: Evaluations should always end before posting of grades.
