Faculty/Course Evaluations

Testing and Evaluation Services provides central support, including online administration of faculty/course evaluations, survey form design, survey reminders via email invitations, and summary report access. There is no direct cost to the school. Faculty may view their end-of-semester reports via ce.miami.edu. Faculty/course evaluation results will be available at the end of each term when final grades are released to students in CaneLink. Custom report features are available to designated administrators in the colleges and schools. Students can complete surveys at their convenience online or via their smart phones or mobile devices without any special set-up. Survey responses are anonymous. Student names or e-mail addresses cannot be connected to any survey data. No survey results are released to faculty until after final grades are posted.
