At the end of each semester, the College asks students to evaluate the effectiveness of our courses and performance of the instructors.  It is departmental policy not to release your grade until this evaluation is completed.

Your comments will be used to assess the strengths and weaknesses of our courses and to give feedback to each instructor about his/her effectiveness as a teacher.  Your comments will only be made available to the instructor after grades have been submitted to the registrar.  Teaching effectiveness is one of the most important criteria that the Department uses in evaluating visiting and junior faculty.

Your evaluation need not be limited to the following questions, but please read the questions carefully and try to touch on each of the issues raised, where appropriate.  Please be as specific as possible, citing examples to illustrate your experiences. Thank you in advance for your time and careful consideration.
