Student Evaluations of Learning Experience:

Most courses use the online course evaluation application. Students, please check with your instructor for information regarding your specific course. If enrolled in a course taught by multiple instructors, you will receive multiple surveys for that course, one for each course instructor. Please be careful to note the instructor named on the survey you complete and fill out all of the surveys for the correct course.  

  • The Office of the Online Campus has been working with the Data Warehouse team to automate the Student Evaluations of Learning Experience process. The course evaluation survey start and end dates are based on this timeline. Students will receive an email when the survey becomes available. As a reminder, students can access evaluations via email link and Canvas.
  • To help make the evaluation process more convenient, students can complete the online and hybrid surveys online via computer or mobile device. Hold your mobile device horizontally in order for the questions to line up properly.
  • The course information is on the evaluation once opened. Students, please make sure that you are evaluating the correct course.
  • Students will receive a Horizon e-mail with a link to each course evaluations, with an embedded password. The email is from Evaluations Coordinator and the subject line is Email Notification of Course Evaluations Open. Students will receive a separate email for each course enrolled in that is using this online course evaluation format. It is important to make sure spam filters are not blocking these messages.

Student Evaluations of Learning Experience is an integral part of the continuous improvement of curriculum and instructional quality at Cal State East Bay. The surveys provide the university with feedback on course content and instructor effectiveness and provide the instructor with useful feedback in improving future teaching. Students, YOUR OPINION MATTERS! Instructors welcome suggestions from students and take them very seriously. All evaluations responses are completely anonymous. Reports, based on anonymous student feedback, are not available to the departments and/or faculty until after all course grades are final.
