(Jan. 13, 2011)--The Office of the Provost and Office of the Vice Provost for Accountability and Institutional Effectiveness awarded iPads to two UTSA students who completed course evaluations for the fall 2010 semester.

Winners of the random drawing for the 16GB iPads with Wi-Fi were Charles Temple, freshman, College of Business, and Dean Turnbaugh, senior, College of Business.

The giveaway was part of the launch of UTSA's new online course evaluations. More than 42,000 end-of-semester evaluations were completed during the fall 2010 evaluation period. Evaluation results, as well as other course and faculty information, are available to UTSA students and the general public on the Bluebook website.

"Thoughtful student input is critical to the course evaluation process, and we're happy to offer these prize incentives to show our students how much we appreciate their participation," said John Frederick, UTSA provost and vice president for academic affairs.

"We see a lot of promise for the online evaluation system based on this launch, and we will continue to refine our process and our survey instrument until we have one that is optimal for our students and faculty."
