How do I access my Course Evaluations?

Course evaluations are one of the most important ways in which students can provide feedback about their learning experiences at UVA. Many evaluation results are available during the class selection process, and they are also used to assess instructors during tenure reviews and other important milestones.

Course Evaluations Process Overview

  1. Two weeks before course evaluations become available for student response, instructors are able to add questions to their individual evaluations.  Instructors receive email notifications listing these dates.  Evaluation periods differ by department, so be sure to note the dates of each course's evaluation period!
  2. Students receive email notifications when courses are available for evaluation.  If students have not yet completed an evaluation when it is about to close, they'll receive an email notification to remind them to complete it.  Evaluation periods differ by department, so be sure to note the dates of each course's evaluation period!
  3. When evaluations are available for a student to complete, they can find the Course Evaluations ACTIVE link in the Tool Menu of Home, NOT the sites for individual classes.
  4. Once a student completes all available evaluations, or the end date for all their evaluations is reached, whichever comes first, the Course Evaluations ACTIVE link disappears from the student's Home site.
  5. Instructors can access evaluation results approximately one week after the evaluation period ends for a course.  The Course Evaluations link is available in the Tool Menu of Home, NOT the sites for individual classes.
