How do I view Course Evaluations results?

Instructors and Course Evaluations Administrators designated by their departments have access to results from Course Evaluations.  Instructors can access evaluation results approximately one week after the evaluation period ends for a course.  They will receive an email notifying them when the results are available.

Instructors have access to their own evaluations ONLY; they cannot view evaluations for teaching assistants or other co-instructors.  Course Evaluations Administrators have access to ALL evaluations for courses in their department.

If a course achieves an evaluation response rate of at least 65% AND the course was not taught by a graduate student, then the results of six of the seven Provost questions (student comments are omitted) are also made available to students via the Course Selection Guide in the Student Information System (SIS) (opens new window).

This article answers the following questions:

Note: If an instructor added questions to their own course evaluations, student responses to these questions are private to the instructor.  Course Evaluations Administrators do not have access to them.
