Learn more about the new course evaluation tool: CES

Periodically, information will be posted regarding Watermark’s Course Evaluations & Surveys (CES) tool to help users better understand Wichita State’s new course evaluation tool.

Today’s focus is on the basic timeline.

  • The CES Administrator programs the pre-determined dates for each process. This pre-determined schedule cannot be modified.
  • The CES tasks are sent at midnight on the scheduled start date and will end at 11:59 p.m. on the scheduled end date.
  • The manage course process for instructors: Instructors have 10 days from notification of the opt-out window to delete courses from CES.
  • CES evaluations will be open for students for varying lengths of time, depending upon the length of the course term:
    • one-week and two-week courses: two days
    • five-week to 16-week courses: 10 days
    • Summer four-week to 11-week courses: seven days
  • Current CES results will be available at the end of the semester. Results will continue to remain accessible afterwards.
    • The availability date will be the Friday after grades are due to the Registrar.
  • There is a dedicated CES website that includes additional information.
