Complete Your Spring/Summer Course Evaluations

It is time to complete your evaluation for your spring/summer course(s). Please click here to begin.

Course evaluations are extremely important. They help Davenport faculty and staff review course workload, materials and outcomes to assess needed revisions. Evaluation feedback is also used to evaluate course instructors and assist in improving skills and teaching methods.

Instructors cannot see evaluations until after all grades have been turned in for the semester. Once grades are submitted, the evaluation data is released to each instructor as a summary, meaning they cannot see individual evaluations. The comments are grouped together so instructors cannot connect ratings and comments.

Please complete your course evaluation so we have this valuable information.
