What if one or more of my courses are not on the list, the system lists a course that I dropped, or a course is listed that I have never taken?
The evaluations listed are for courses that are almost complete. For example, if you are taking an 8wk course and a 16wk course, evaluations for the 16wk course will not be available yet. Additionally, not all courses are evaluated.
Do not evaluate a dropped course or a course that you’ve never taken - No further action required.
The wrong instructor is listed for the course I am evaluating.
Complete the evaluation and note the name of the correct instructor in the “Comments” section of the evaluation. Please place three asterisks (***) in the comment, so that it will be recognized as an incorrect instructor.
What if I need to redo my evaluation because I evaluated the wrong course or the wrong instructor?
Please complete and submit a trouble ticket by clicking on the Need Help? tab at the top of your dashboard OR clicking on the made a mistake? link in blue at the bottom of your dashboard. We may need to reset the evaluation.
However, if the evaluation is closed, we will be unable to assist.
