CoursEval is a web-based evaluation and reporting tool that can be used for a variety of confidential survey-driven assessment and non-assessment activities. It was designed by an academic administrator and instructor with the explicit goal of making the required task of course evaluations easier, smarter, and less expensive for other administrators and instructors. CoursEval will allow us to evaluate courses and faculty online, replacing the paper process/bubble sheet approach. The software provides the means to create, deploy, and analyze longitudinal surveys geared to evaluate courses and faculty instruction. CoursEval will easily handle the traditional semester-end evaluations providing comprehensive reports.

CoursEval started at Ohio Northern University in the spring of 2005-06 with a pilot in the College of Engineering. That quarter's response rate was 91%. We were very pleased with the execution of the evaluation and the reports that followed. It was that pilot that led us to purchase the software and by the fall of 2008-09 all colleges were using the software.

Future Evaluation Dates:

Fall 2017-18

Faculty/Course Evaluations- Nov. 27-Dec. 10

Spring 2017-18

The course/instructor evaluations are administered 2 weeks before finals each semester. No reports will be available until after grades are released. Courses are evaluated with 3 or more students enrolled to maintain anonymity. All evaluations are anonymous unless they choose to identify themselves.

The peer administrative evaluations for deans, associate deans, chairs and some directors in the colleges are administered in the spring each year according to the faculty handbook. The president's evaluation is available every 3 years and the provost evaluation is provided every 2 years. All reports are given to each supervisor for them to distribute. The president's evaluation is given to him and the chair of the university council. The provost report is given to the president.
