General policies for course evaluations are set by the Office of the Provost. Institutional Research has additional policies and procedures in place to ensure that the actual conduct of the evaluations is handled efficiently and confidentially.

Course Evaluation Policies and Procedures 2021-22

POLICY GUIDELINES from the Baylor Faculty Handbook
Because Baylor University emphasizes the importance of good teaching, faculty members should explore ways to develop, maintain, and improve instruction. Student evaluation of courses provides an important means by which faculty can measure the effectiveness of their instruction; for this reason, all faculty members at Baylor are expected to participate in the system of student evaluation of courses coordinated by the Office of Institutional Research.

*For Fall and Spring semesters only: the Early Request Form can be submitted by Department Chairs to request evaluations prior to the end of the semester. Early requests for Fall and Spring semesters are due to Melinda Dunn (Melinda_Dunn@baylor.edu) by the fourth week of class.
