THE ADMINISTRATION AND PROCESSING OF TEACHING EFFECTIVENESS EVALUATION FORMS[1]

Written

and/or verbal explanations provided to students shall make clear the purpose of

the evaluation.

Whenever

possible, student evaluation forms should be distributed and their completion

supervised by a teaching assistant, colleague, or office staff member.


3.

If

this is not possible, the instructor shall: inform the department chair; and

assign a reliable student who will distribute the evaluation forms, read the

instructions aloud, and collect the finished forms and take them immediately

after class to a designated person or location for further processing.


4.

Before

the evaluation is conducted, the instructor shall inform the office staff of

the name of the person who will collect the finished evaluation forms and

deliver them to the designated person or location.

The

evaluation process is subject to ADA regulations.

instructor shall not be in the room when students are completing the teaching

effectiveness rating form.

Before

leaving the classroom, the instructor shall inform the students that their

responses are anonymous and that they are not to write their names on the

evaluation forms.  The instructor shall

inform the students that he/she will receive the results only after course

grades have been posted.

Under

no circumstance shall the instructor have access to the evaluation data until

the final grades for the course have been

posted.
