This page provides instructions for using the faculty features of the online Course Evaluations system. Questions should be directed to Web Development at courseeval-admin@udel.edu

Set up for a term

Once you log in to course evaluations, you will see two tabs: Set up and Reports.

  • The Set up tab is where you will check everything before students log in.

  • The Reports tab is where you will go to see student responses for current or past terms.


Evaluations for courses I teach

  • On the Set Up tab, go to the Evaluations for Courses I Teach for [term] section.
  • Note: If you teach a course that is using online evaluations, then the course should be listed in this section. If a course is not listed, contact your Chair's Office.
  • If you have courses with last class dates that are different from the term end dates:

    Review the Last class date and be sure it is within the date range of the column to its left titled Student access dates.

    If there are discrepancies, contact your Chair's Office.

  • To review a concise listing of questions for each course listed:

    Click the View question summary link.

    You may see the questions, who assigned the question to the evaluation, and the ordering of questions as they will appear to students.

    Check to be sure questions you may have added to the evaluation are what you still need.

  • Tip: From this page, you may also create questions, assign your questions to evaluations, and remove questions that you have added to the evaluation. See the directions below for more explanation of these features.
  • To view the evaluation as a student will see it, for each course listed:

    Click See student view.

    You may see the questions, their response format, and the ordering of questions as it will appear to students.

  • Tip: Questions are presented in this order for instructor type then course type questions:
    1. UD questions
    2. College questions
    3. Department questions
    4. Group questions (Honors, Distance Learning, Evening Credit, Special Programs)
    5. My questions

    Click My Questions.

    Review the assignments for your questions.

    If you need to assign a question, use the Assign to evaluation choice in the Action column.


Remove a question from an evaluation

Instructors may only remove questions that they have added to evaluations. Removing a question does not delete it from your My Questions library; it only removes the question from the evaluation.
  • On the Set up tab, go to the Evaluations for Courses I Teach section.
  • Click the View question summary link for the course you wish to view.
  • Click the Remove button to remove the question from the evaluation for this course.

Retire/Activate a question

You may "retire" questions that you no longer wish to use or questions that have been updated.

If you edit a question, a new question and QID is automatically created. Be sure to retire the former question and assign the new question.

  • To retire a question:

    Find the question in the My Questions library.

    In the Action column, choose Retire question from the select list.

  • Note: Retiring a question does not remove it from your course evaluation. Retiring a question reminds you not to use it in the future. See the directions to Remove a question from an evaluation.
  • To activate a retired question:

    Scroll to the bottom of the question library, and find the question.

    In the Action column, choose Activate question from the select list.

  • Tip: Retiring a question relocates the question to the end of the question library. All active questions are listed first and are sorted in numerical order. Retired questions are listed in numerical order at the end of the question library.
