Student Evaluations of Courses and Instructors

[Faculty Handbook Category #2]

Faculty members are encouraged to seek student feedback on the quality of their courses and the effectiveness of their instruction.  The Office of Academic Research and Planning provides a variety of services to assist faculty in developing and administering evaluations for purposes of instructional improvement.  Instructor-initiated evaluations are formative in nature; their principal purpose is to promote faculty development and instructional improvement.  The Office of Academic Research and Planning will provide results of instructor-initiated evaluations only to the instructor.
