End-of-Semester Course Evaluations
Thank you, students, for participating in the end-of-semester evaluations of your courses and instructor; your participation is important to all of us. Academic departments use the results in making decisions about staffing and tenure, and individual faculty members use your input to improve their course material and delivery—all of which improves the calibre and reputation of our campus.
Students’ Frequently Asked Questions
What is CoursEval?
CoursEval is a Web-based software program we have chosen for administering the course evaluations. There are no more paper-based evaluations; instead, all surveys are administered in a more secure, protected environment that allows you to anonymously evaluate all of your courses and instructors online. This system replaces all paper-based, end-of-semester evaluations as of the fall 2011 semester.
Are course evaluation results anonymous?
Yes! As a UM-Flint student, you will log into CoursEval using your uniqname and LAN password. When your page loads, you’ll see a link for each course survey available to you. Even though you log into CoursEval, your survey data is saved anonymously. Your responses are not associated with any data you submit, and all information sources will be disconnected from the evaluation results except for your actual survey input.
How do I log in to take the survey?
You will be sent an e-mail announcing that the survey period is active and instructing you to go to https://CoursEval.umflint.edu. Simply enter your UM-Flint uniqname and LAN password.
Will my instructor see my comments before my grade is submitted?
No. All survey data collected is saved anonymously and no survey data is made available to instructors until one week after final grades are due to the Office of the Registrar.
I didn't receive an on-line survey, but others in my class did. Why?
If your class is using CoursEval, you will be emailed a link to the course survey. CoursEval uses your "@umflint.edu" e-mail address.
In order to receive e-mail from CoursEval, you must have a valid e-mail address. If you forward your e-mail to a non-UM-Flint account, we cannot guarantee e-mail delivery. We also do not have the ability to troubleshoot or evaluate why there are issues receiving e-mail to a non-UM-Flint e-mail account.
If you have questions or problems using CoursEval, please contact the Office of Extended Learning by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (810) 237-6691.
