Notify Instructors that Fall 2009 Teaching Evaluations Are Available

If your department has already ordered Fall 2009 end-of-course teaching evaluations, please notify your instructors that their evaluations are ready for review in the Faculty Center on Wolverine Access. Instructors with questions about their evaluations should contact their departments immediately.

INSTRUCTOR DOCUMENTATION
Instructors can access step-by-step procedures and a guided simulation in Faculty Business Help at: https://heprod.dsc.umich.edu/htmldoc/eng/dftie/lsaa/htm/sr_fb_teachingeval.htm.

If your department allows instructors to add questions to their teaching evaluations, please also inform them that they must add their questions before November 23. For other key dates in the teaching evaluation process and who to contact for form or template revisions, see the October 9 e-mail below.

IMPORTANT NOTES
-- Only instructors designated as a primary instructor in M-Pathways can add evaluation questions.
-- Primary instructors can add questions only to the home section of a cross-listed class.
-- The ability for a primary instructor to add questions is associated with evaluation templates. Contact the Office of Examinations and Evaluations (E&E) to change template settings.
