Response Rates

Student participation in the CourseEvalUM process is critical to the improvement of teaching on campus and to the tenure and promotion process. As a result, we want to provide response rate information and encourage more participation in the course evaluation process.

Two types of information are presented below. First, the response rates for the current term in which we are collecting evaluation submissions are posted. You may check the list regularly during the evaluation submission period to find out the current response rate for your course sections. This may help you prompt students to submit their evaluations by the close of the evaluation period. Second, response rate summaries for past fall and spring semesters are posted.
