Course Evaluations & Surveys Access

Course Evaluations & Surveys (CES; Formerly EvaluationKIT) is used by the University to manage Student Perceptions of Instruction (SPI) by using course and user information stored in Banner. Student responses are kept anonymous and all data is collected for later reporting to department administrators and instructors.

▼   Roles

When using CES, it is best to start with an understanding of the three primary roles.

Administrator: Each dean, department chair, and authorized staff member will have access to SPI response rates and reports for courses in their unit. Access to results is granted one day after final grades have posted.

Instructor: Each course being evaluated is required to have one or more instructors. Instructors have the ability to see the response rate for their courses and is given access to their results one day after final grades have posted.

Students: Each class being evaluated must have at least one student. Students reply to the SPI evaluation and their answers are used to create the results for the evaluation. All student answers are kept anonymous.
