The University of Kansas values effective teaching. Although student evaluations are only one component of an effective teaching assessment strategy, they are an important component and must be given due consideration. We remind you that University policy requires that teaching faculty should be rated each semester by students in all courses with 3 or more students.

University policy also requires that the forms are administered and collected under controlled conditions that ensure students' anonymity.

To meet this requirement, instructors should:

  1. Leave the room during the administration of the student evaluations.
  2. Ask a student or other departmental representative to collect the evaluations and deliver them to the department or school office for tabulation.

Departments and schools are reminded that instructors should have access to student evaluations only after final grades have been submitted.
