Graduate Course surveys are administered in-class by the Department during weeks seven and eight of the quarter. One copy of the evaluation summary will go to the faculty member, and one copy will be placed in the faculty member's file.

Undergraduate Course surveys are administered online by Course and Professor Evaluation (CAPE), a student-run organization. Students will evaluate you and the course during weeks eight through 10 of the quarter. Response rates can be very low without faculty encouragement. CAPE ( provides tips on increasing response rates from successful faculty. The CAPE results, as well as your actual grade distribution for the entire class, are reported here ( Finally, your student's written CAPE comments are not publicly available and are found here (

Teaching Assistant surveys: Academic Affairs will e-mail you a link to the survey in week 8 and you have until after final exams to complete the TA survey. We strongly encourage all faculty to submit their TA evaluations! Your responses play an important role in determining future TA assignments. Detailed comments are particularly important for TA awards and in determining which graduate students may teach their own class.

Lecturers & New Faculty surveys are administered in-class by the Department in mid-quarter. Evaluations will be distributed to the relevant instructor around the middle of the quarter and should be returned to the Graduate Advising staff in Sequoyah Hall, Rm. 243.
