Will my instructor know if I completed the course evaluation?
- Course evaluations are administered centrally through the Office of Course Evaluations.
- Faculty members have access only to the number of students that responded to a survey and to comments. They are allowed access only after the course has completed and final grades have been turned in.
Are my responses confidential?
Faculty are provided summary reports only after grades have been submitted.
Summary reports DO NOT include any identifying student information unless you specifically enter your name in a comment field.
Written comments are provided as submitted.
If the instructor does not know if I complete my course evaluation, how am I able to receive reminders?
The course evaluation software automatically sends reminders to students who have not yet responded.
These reminders are "personalized" by referencing the class list within TCC’s student information system (SIS).
I completed my course evaluations. Why am I still receiving reminders?
You will continue to receive reminders until all of your course evaluations have been submitted. A sure way to avoid email reminders is to complete your course evaluations.
Please log into Blackboard and confirm that you have submitted all of your evaluations.
To avoid email reminders be sure to complete course evaluations for all the courses in which you are enrolled.
I do not see a course evaluation for one of my courses. What should I do?
Are all of the course evaluations available at the same time?
The dates each class is offered determines the dates that the course evaluations are available to you. There are many different ways classes are delivered. For example, 4-week, 8-week, 10-week, 12-week, and 16-week classes are common throughout the semester. Additionally, some classes meet on only specific dates. Typically, course evaluations are made available near the end of the class and before final grades are due.
