Help: Teaching Evaluations


Blue Teaching Evaluation System In Spring 2018 the University transitioned to the Blue Teaching Evaluation system. Instructors use Blue to view their reports. Students can access evaluations either in Blue or through Canvas. Blue teaching evaluation reports are not available in Canvas or M-Pathways. All administrators, instructors and students use the same link to access Blue:

Question Personalization (QP) for Instructors

Each instructor can add up to five (5) of their own questions. While instructors have access to view the department and university wide questions they cannot remove them from the questionnaire. Instructions on how to add questions are included in the invitation email to instructors. Feel free to create your own or select from the for question ideas.

Ordering Process

Evaluations are typically ordered in the first month of a new term. Each school, college, or department has at least one designated administrator who is responsible for ordering evaluations. The administrators receive an email in the beginning of the term letting them know when ordering begins. They decide which courses and instructors will receive an evaluation. While ordering they have the ability to update the evaluation student fill out dates. Please contact the administrator regarding your specific evaluation dates.

Key Dates

calendar of important teaching evaluation dates is available on the Office of the Registrar - Evaluations website.
