Course Evaluations are being conducted for both SPTEs and the Course Evaluations and Surveys (CES) pilot. Since CES is a pilot, not all courses will be available for administration. It’s suggested that you elect to use one or the other evaluation tool for a single course. If you are unsure which evaluation tool to use, check with your department.
The results from the CES pilot cannot be submitted for any official review process. including T&P, FAR, post-tenure review or department policies, so here are the steps needed for if you do or do not need official reviews:
If you need course evaluations for any official review:
- Submit the SPTE request form by Wednesday, Feb. 22.
- When you receive an email from evaluations@CES.wichita.edu, you will need to opt-out the courses you don’t want in the CES Pilot. This way your students will not receive two course evaluations for the same course. These emails are distributed according to the part-of-term your course(s) is assigned.
If you do not need course evaluations for any official review:
- Do not submit the SPTE request form.
- When you receive an email from evaluations@CES.wichita.edu, you will need to only opt-out the courses you do not want evaluated through the CES pilot.
All instructors who are in the pilot group will receive emails from evaluations@CES.wichita.edu. Steps to opt-out by deleting courses in CES and additional information can be found on the Watermark Tools homepage under the section menu.
