Administration of UIS Course Evaluations
On-Campus – Instructions for administering course evaluations in the classroom are included with each evaluation packet. Identify a student to be responsible for administering, collecting and depositing the completed evaluation packet in one of the course evaluation drop boxes, which are located throughout classroom buildings and identified on the instruction sheet. Faculty are required to leave the classroom while students complete their evaluations.
Online – Faculty teaching online courses are required to use the online course evaluation system (https://uisapp-s.uis.edu/evaluation/).
Processing of Evaluations
The Faculty Files Office collects the completed evaluation packets from the drop boxes and enters the data into the course evaluation database (for on-campus evaluations). The Faculty Files Office generates a summary report for each faculty member’s permanent personnel file for each course taught during a given semester. An email notification is sent to the faculty notifying them that their evaluation summaries are available online and the course evaluation forms, which include handwritten student comments, are then returned to the faculty member.
Current and historical evaluation summaries can be accessed through the following url: https://uisapp-s.uis.edu/evaluation/. Through this site faculty are able to access their individual, department and college summaries and can also access campus-wide summaries. Student handwritten comments are included in the database, but can only be seen in the individual faculty view (secure access) and are not included in the summary entered into the personnel file.
Team Taught Courses – Each instructor is evaluated individually, with the process being identical to the standard course evaluation.
Alternative Evaluations – The process is expected to be identical to the standard course evaluation.
Supplemental Evaluations – Faculty may choose how supplemental course evaluations are administered and documented.
If faculty elect to develop and use a supplemental evaluation form they may use the standard course evaluation distribution and/or collection process.
Library Faculty – See Faculty Personnel Policy, Appendix 11 for guidelines & process.
