Meredith College uses CoursEval, a web based on-line software product provided by ConnectEdu, for course evaluations. The course evaluation process and student feedback is critical to the success of Meredith College.
Evaluations are anonymous! The system can determinel if a student fills out an evaluation but does not link back to the student's ID. Electronic course surveys also prevent handwriting recognition.
Evaluation results are not released until final grades have been submitted for the semester. Professors, Department Heads, Deans, Academic Vice-Presidents, and the College President the can see summary reports and all comments.
Course evaluations are done in the fall and spring semesters. Courses that end mid-semester or earlier are evaluated before the end of the term. Classes with 4 or more students are eligible to participate in the course evaluation process. One evaluation per course is permitted and can be completed on and off campus.
Email(s) containing login name and password will be sent to the student's Meredith College address when there is a survey to complete.
Failure to respond to the survey, prior to the deadline, will disqualify the student from participating in the process.
Students who have not received email notification should login to CourseEval and check for active surveys. If the survey does not appear in the students list and there are 4 or more students in the class, then contact Karen West at Westlkm@meredith.edu for assistance.
An email will be sent to the faculty member's Meredith College address before a survey goes live with instructions when the survey will open and close so faculty can set aside class time. The email will also cover the following topics.
Which students will receive a survey.
What the student's email will say.
What to do if a student is missing from the list (please note students cannot be removed until they have officially withdrawn from the course - if students still show up on the WebAdvisor roster, they will show up on CoursEval).
It is recommended that professors choose one of the last class days to do evaluations. Research has shown that setting aside class time significantly improves response rates for course evaluations. Students should be advised ahead of time so they can be prepared. A student should be designated to get the professor when the class is finished evaluating.
