How do I find information on Course Evaluations in progress?

The dates for Course Evaluations vary by department; they are selected by Course Evaluations administrators in each department.  Instructors may want to verify these dates.  Additionally, to encourage students to submit evaluations, some instructors provide incentives (e.g., extra credit points) for students who complete them.  If enough students submit evaluations, a list of respondents is generated for this purpose.

Instructors can access the following information about Course Evaluations that have been created for the current semester:

  • How many evaluations have been submitted
  • How many students are enrolled in the course
  • The status of the evaluations
  • Dates when instructors can add questions to a course's evaluations (two weeks before the evaluations open for students to submit them)
  • Dates when students can submit evaluations for the course
  • If at least 5 students have submitted evaluations, a respondent list indicating which students have submitted them

IMPORTANT: The Course Evaluations link is available in the Tool Menu of Home, NOT the sites for individual classes.

Note: Course Evaluations are completely anonymous; no information identifying which student submitted a particular evaluation is tied to their submission.  The respondent list only records which students submitted evaluations, not what they submitted.

Go to Home.

When you first log into UVACollab, you are placed in your Home site.  If you are viewing an individual course site, select the Home tab in the favorites bar at the top of the screen to access it.

Select Course Evaluations.

The Course Evaluations link is located near the bottom of the Tool Menu in your Home site.  Click on it to access a list of courses you are teaching or have taught, for which evaluations have been created.

Select a course.

Click on the name of a course to access its evaluations.

View the EVALUATION MONITOR.

The EVALUATION MONITOR contains the following information about the course's evaluations:

  1. Number Taken - How many students have submitted evaluations.
  2. Enrollment - The total number of students in the course.
  3. Status - If the evaluations are Not Yet Started, In Progress, or Concluded.
  4. If at least 5 students have submitted evaluations for the course, there will be a link, list of respondents, to access the list of which students submitted.
  5. Faculty Add Questions - The start and end dates for when instructors can add questions to their individual evaluations.
  6. Student Evaluation Period - The start and end dates for when students can submit evaluations.

Note: Course Evaluations are completely anonymous; no information identifying which student submitted a particular evaluation is tied to their submission.  The respondent list only records which students submitted evaluations, not what they submitted.

View Respondent List.

To encourage students to submit evaluations, some instructors provide incentives (e.g., extra credit points) for students who complete them.  If you'd like to do so, and at least 5 students have submitted evaluations for the course, you can click the list of respondents link in the EVALUATION MONITOR to access the lists of students who submitted the evaluations (RESPONDENTS) and those who did not (NON-RESPONDENTS).

Note: Course Evaluations are completely anonymous; no information identifying which student submitted a particular evaluation is tied to their submission.  The respondent list only records which students submitted evaluations, not what they submitted.
