Evaluate your next courses online
Help keep curriculum excellence-driven
In 2012, the University began testing and using a new online system to allow students to evaluate their courses. This system replaced a paper-based evaluation process that had been used at Union for many years.
With a more efficient tool to assess course effectiveness, the University now has more opportunities for improvement.
Each semester you'll receive convenient, personalized evaluation links via e-mail. Additionally, some faculty members will include evaluation links in your Moodlerooms courses. Using these resources, 92% of all students contacted were a part of the Fall 2012 evaluation process!
In the future, please complete all your course surveys as soon as the semester ends. In return, you'll get earlier access to your final grades in WebAdvisor!
