Online Course Evaluations FAQs

In addition to paper course evaluations, Institutional Planning & Analysis also offers online course evaluations.

These are administered through Class Climate and students are given instructions via email or they can access the evaluations directly using Cougar Courses.

The online evaluations use the same questions as paper evaluations and similarly faculty will be sent a report of their results at the end of the semester.

If you have any questions regarding online course evaluations please see the link to the guide below.
