FAQ - General
With the electronic process, when may course evaluations be submitted?
During a given semester, the evaluation process opens approximately 2 weeks before the end of classes. Students receive an email notification approximately one week before the process begins. The window during which students can submit evaluations ends at 8:00 a.m. on the first day of finals.
Are electronic course evaluations completely anonymous and secure?
Yes, electronic evaluations are both anonymous and confidential. Instructors do not receive any identifying information within their evaluation results. Please be assured that the electronic evaluation system only keeps a record of who has submitted an evaluation in order to ensure that no student can submit more than one evaluation in any course. The system also disassociates each student's name from the evaluation that he or she has submitted. Institutional Research and Testing knows whether or not students have submitted an evaluation, but we have no record that attaches a student's identity to any one evaluation. Also, because evaluations are completed electronically, there is no need to be concerned about a professor recognizing a student's handwriting.
When completing evaluations through Blackboard, students are re-directed to the website of our vendor, EvaluationKIT. All evaluation results are stored outside of Baylor University.
When I attempt to complete my electronic evaluations, what if I cannot login using my BearID and password?
If you have checked your login information, please try the steps listed below. If these changes still do not allow you to access the evaluations, please contact IRT.
With the electronic process, when will results be available?
Results for all evaluations will not be available until all grades have been submitted and processed. They will, however, be available immediately after grade processing at the end of a particular term. Faculty will be notified via e-mail when the reports are available.
