(June 30, 2011)--The course evaluation period for the first five-week summer term opens Thursday, June 30, and will continue through Tuesday, July 5.
This week, students will receive an email with links to the evaluations for each course they are enrolled in. Students should not share the evaluation link with classmates; the link can be used only once. Alternately, students can log in to ASAP to complete their evaluations.
"We encourage faculty who are teaching this summer to talk with their classes about the importance of filling out the course evaluations," said Doug Atkinson, director of evaluations and surveys in the Office of Institutional Research. "Students should understand that the online surveys are anonymous and that their thoughtful feedback really can help instructors improve their courses."
Atkinson also added that some email providers may block the evaluation emails as spam. In order to receive the emails and completion certificates, students should add the following email addresses to their approved senders list:
Beginning fall 2010, end-of-semester course evaluations are conducted online, completely replacing the paper-based IDEA surveys previously used. In addition to saving paper and class time, the online course evaluations also help the university comply with Texas H.B. 2504, which requires certain evaluation results and other data to be posted online. At UTSA, that information is posted on the Bluebook website.
