Student rating of instruction

Students in all fall/spring sections with an enrollment of 6 or more will receive a survey to rate the instruction in that section unless a Dean/Chair (or designated departmental representative) exempts the section through communication with the CTL.

A move to an online evaluation system was approved by the Senate during Spring 2013.   Please refer to Senate Procedures and Senate Proposal 12-03 for information about the following:

  • Why and how are student evaluations administered at Michigan Tech?
  • How are student responses used?
  • What is the role of the William G. Jackson Center of Teaching and Learning?


Evaluations will be open for completion between 8:00 AM on the Friday two weeks before the last day of the semester and close at 11:59 PM on the Sunday before final exams.   (Summer tracks:  8:00 AM Friday one week prior to the end of the track through 11:59 PM Thursday before final exam day.)   

Participating students will receive email links and directions on how to complete evaluations 1-2 days prior to the beginning of the evaluation period as well as automatic e-mail reminders throughout the evaluation period.  For instructors who DO use Canvas, students will automatically be reminded through windows and links within each Canvas course.
