Course Evaluations

Course Evaluations

NJCU utilizes IDEA course evaluations to provide faculty with student feedback on instruction. Students complete the online evaluations near the end of each Fall and Spring semester. This page contains information on the following topics:

  • Student Privacy and Anonymity
  • Semester Schedule
  • Accessing Course Evaluations
  • Included/Excluded Classes
  • Selecting Key Learning Objectives (faculty)
  • Results

Student Privacy and Anonymity

Students’ participation in IDEA is anonymous. Instructors are able to track response rate, but they do not know whether an individual student has or has not completed the form. Instructors receive summaries of results, not individual results linked to any student.

Selecting Key Learning Objectives

Before course evaluations open for students, faculty should select the 3-5 most important learning objectives for the course. Faculty may want to consider the following when rating learning objectives:

  • Is this objective a significant part of the course?
  • Do I do something specific to help students accomplish this objective?
  • Does a student’s progress on this objective substantially affect his or her grade?

See the IDEA website for more information.

Results

Faculty use results to understand and improve the teaching and learning experience for students. We thank all for participation and support of this process. See response rates here.

IDEA results are available to faculty after grading closes. Results are accessible through GothicNet and are presented in summary form only. Faculty members do not have access to responses of individual students. IDEA provides guidance for interpreting results.

Student do not have access to the results.
