Mission

Course Evaluations are your opportunity to give feedback to your instructors and programs about the quality of your classes. We encourage all of you to participate in this very important process. Your feedback is a critical part of the teaching and learning partnership.

Course Evaluations

When and how do I get to the evaluation?

The evaluations are typically open during the final quarter of the course, ending just before the final exam period starts. The evaluation period is not the same for all courses.

Two students

You will receive an email to your UHV account with a link to the evaluation. You may use almost any internet device, such as a computer, a smart phone, an iPad, or any other tablet. If your instructor is using Blackboard for the class, you may access the evaluation through your Blackboard class site.

Can I fill out the evaluation in class instead of online?

UHV will not distribute paper evaluations for you to fill out in class. Please use this electronic evaluation to give feedback about all of your classes, both face-to-face and online. You can access evaluations for any course by checking your UHV email or the Notifications area in Blackboard, even if your instructor is not using Blackboard in class.

How will the evaluation affect my standing?

The evaluations are completely anonymous. Your instructor and a minimal number of administrators will see your answers. Nobody will ever see your name, ID number, or other information that tells who you are unless you identify yourself in the comments section.

Because the evaluations are anonymous, we have no way to find and cancel your finished or half-finished evaluation. If you close your evaluation before you are done, or if a computer error causes the evaluation to close, there is nothing we can do about it. Revised by OIE September 2013.

Feedback Matters

Your feedback is used for two important purposes. First, instructors use your feedback to make changes to how they run the course. Second, the program director may use your feedback to evaluate your instructor. The results from these evaluations help administrators make decisions about which instructors to give new contracts to, raises, or promotions.
