Course Evaluations Using Moodle

General Procedures

Beginning Fall 2008 semester, course evaluations may be offered using Moodle. The tool, called "Feedback" can be used to create course evaluations that are easily accessible to students within their courses. The Feedback tool gives the designated course evaluation coordinator full control over setting up, distributing, and collecting results for their respective department and calculating the results as students submit the evaluations.

Note: This is not your only evaluation option. You may also choose to continue conducting your class evaluations using paper evaluations. For more information about this option, please contact the helpdesk at 282-HELP or help@isu.edu

Department Chair Procedures

The Course Evaluation Coordinator Request Form needs to be submitted by the department chair (or their designee) with the contact information of the individual(s) selected to be the evaluation coordinator(s). This form needs to be re-submitted if the coordinator information changes.
Once the request is processed, then the coordinator(s) will be able to administer the course evaluations in Moodle.
Instructors will need to make sure all of their course sections are visible to students to ensure that the course evaluations will be available.

Course Evaluation Coordinator Procedures

Each semester a new request needs to be submitted by the course evaluation coordinator using the Course Evaluation Request Form. Once the new, empty course evaluation is created, we will send a confirmation email to the coordinator. The coordinator is responsible for downloading the data after the evaluation closes. Course evaluations will be removed 45 days after the end of the semester.
