This semester, course evaluations will transition more to the new platform, Watermark Course Evaluations & Surveys (CES). CES utilizes Blackboard to centralize all facets of the course evaluation process:

  • Communications to alert faculty and students to take action
  • Dashboards for both faculty and students to monitor activity
  • Deliver the course evaluation to the students
  • Reports available for faculty on completed evaluations

Having the CES components embedded within a central location where most instructional activity is being done is key to maintaining communications and performance.

More information can be found on the CES website. Additionally, check for emails sent from WSU Evaluations or Sandra Ranney, and for spring 2023 SPTE users, a letter with the results.
