Midterm and Final Course Evaluations are completed online via Albert, and both students and faculty will be notified before each evaluation period opens. Evaluations serve a critical role as we strive for continuous quality improvement in teaching and in student performance. They are anonymous and results of the evaluations will be viewable to the respective instructor. The program directors, chairs, and Vice Dean for Faculty Affairs will review the final evaluations to assure that high quality courses are being delivered. Midterm evaluations provide an opportunity for adjustments based on student feedback. The final evaluations also serve as a record of teaching effectiveness. Courses that are fewer than 12 weeks in length only receive a final evaluation.
Grade Rosters are required at two points during the semester. Midterm grade rosters are requested for all full-term courses during the 7th week of the semester and ask that faculty report on the progress of students thus far in the semester. Final grade rosters will open after the last session of the course. Final grades are due no later than 72 hours of the scheduled final exam. However, if it's not possible to submit grades by then, you must let your students know when they should expect their grades. Keep in mind that some students are graduating, so it's important that you adhere to the deadline of submitting your grades no later than 72 hours after the scheduled final exam.
