The Course Evaluation Project now has its own web site:
The proposed core questions, which were piloted in fall 2018, appear on the FAQs about the pilot test page and are listed below for your reference:
- The instructor identified the intended learning outcomes for this course.
- The intended learning outcomes were assessed through my graded work.
- The course activities prepared me for the graded work.
- Graded work was returned in a reasonable amount of time.

- Overall, I learned a great deal from this instructor.
- Overall, the quality of my learning experience in this course was excellent

The Cours Evaluation Project is nearing the end of phase 2 and will enter phase 3 in winter 2020. The final part of phase 2 will include consultations with each Faculty on the content of faculty-wide questions. In preparation, Engineering teaching members are encouraged to
- review and consider the work that has been done to arrive at the core questions that were piloted in fall 2018,
- think about what questions might be relevant to all courses taught in the Faculty of Engineering (faculty-level questions),
- think about what questions might be relevant to all courses taught in your own academic unit (department-level questions), and
- consider what kinds of questions you might be interested to ask students in your own classes (instructor-level questions).
Thank you for your continued engagement with the Course Evaluation Project as we move closer to a standardized survey instrument that will meet the needs of all our varied course offerings!
