Administration of Course and Teaching Evaluations in Class
Faculty are encouraged to provide class-time for students to complete their course evaluations. By setting aside 20 minutes during class for students to complete course evaluations, instructors are not only increasing the overall student response rates, but they are also increasing the likelihood that students have time to think through their responses.
In preparation to carve out class-time for course evaluations, faculty may want to remind students to bring a mobile device to class (smart phone, tablet, laptop), or remind them of the iPad Loaner Program at the Jean and Alexander Heard Library.
For more information, visit the Center for Teaching’s website detailing the benefits of providing class-time for course and teaching evaluations.
Recommended Strategies to Increase Student Completion
- Designate time in class for students to complete evaluations.
- Tell your students that you value their honest and constructive feedback.
- Let your students know that you are interested in both positive and negative feedback.
- Describe the kind of feedback you find most useful.
- Remind students that evaluations are designed to be completely anonymous and that you will not be able to see any of their evaluations until after final grades have been submitted.
- Let students know that you are the primary audience for their feedback, but that others will potentially read their evaluations, including department and school administrators. Course evaluations play a role in personnel evaluations and in curriculum planning.
- Consider including language in your syllabus that addresses student evaluations.
