General policies for student evaluations of faculty are set by the Office of the Provost. Institutional Research and Testing has additional policies and procedures in place to ensure that the actual conduct of the evaluations is handled efficiently and confidentially.
POLICY GUIDELINES from the 2002 Baylor Faculty Handbook
All new faculty members must participate in course evaluations in all sections of the courses they teach every fall until they have completed six years at Baylor or until they have received tenure. All tenured faculty members are expected to participate in student evaluations in all sections of the courses they teach during the fall of every third calendar year. Part-time faculty, whether employed for a single semester or on a recurring basis, are encouraged to participate in course evaluations in all sections of the courses they teach.
