Questionnaire Guidelines

  • Every questionnaire has ten university wide core questions.
  • In 2020, ‘Overall, this was an excellent course’ Q1 and ‘Overall, the instructor was an excellent teacher’ Q2 will be retired. While they will no longer be required, departments can use them as one of their questions.
  • Each department can have up to twelve questions to their template.
  • Instructors may add up to five of their own questions (3 multiple choice and 2 open ended). Instructors are able to view the questionnaire before added to ensure questions are not duplicated.
  • Q3 “I learned a great deal from this course.” has been replaced with Q1631 “This course advanced my understanding of the subject matter.”
  • If a department chooses to include fewer than 12 questions, the system is not able to compensate to allow additional instructor-added questions.
