Course Evaluation Form Options

Under the direction of the Faculty Senate, the Registrar's Office offers faculty various teaching evaluation forms, tailored to meet the needs of different instructional settings. Descriptions of the form options and questions are available below.

Note: Although each form was designed with particular class formats in mind, faculty are invited to base their form selections on the appropriateness of the items for their courses and objectives.
