Information for Instructors

All courses with five (5) or more students are evaluated using MERCURY. The feedback you obtain from your students through MERCURY course evaluations is one input to an ongoing reflective process that you should engage in to improve your teaching and future offerings of courses.

This page contains resources for instructors on optional mid-course and required end-of-course evaluations, including strategies to encourage student participation and guidelines to help you interpret your course evaluation results.

  • You may add up to three (3) questions to your course evaluation questionnaire. Deadline for Fall 2017: November 3.
