Make sure you understand your college’s policy for executing student evaluations. Most commonly, you are required to leave the room while students fill out their evaluations. You will, most likely, be required to assign a student to oversee the process.
Be sure of three things:
- Before you leave the classroom, you should emphasize how important your students’ feedback is to you.
- Make sure students understand the evaluation form and process. All too often, students check the opposite boxes because they do not understand what constitutes a good rating.
- Make sure the student overseeing the evaluation process knows what to do with the completed evaluations.
