Student Appraisals of Teaching

Student evaluations are required for each class. Each term, surveys will be sent electronically through a program called Class Climate, which is set up by your department support staff and the assistant to the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs. You will receive an email when the surveys begin, and surveys are open for about 3 weeks. Please encourage your students to complete their surveys, and assure them their feedback is completely anonymous. (Students are not required to complete their surveys, so consistent reminders and showing honest interest in their feedback will help you receive more responses.)

After final grades are due (the Monday following Finals Week at 8 am), Amber Vore will email the PDF survey responses to you. Your dean also has access to your surveys. If you don't receive surveys for a course, or have any questions, please feel free to contact Amber Vore or your dean.
