Student FAQ

Q:    When is the deadline to fill out evaluations?
A:    The deadline is stated in the e-mail notification we send, as well as on our Online Evaluation Schedule page.
Q:    What do I do if I cannot access my evaluations?
A:    Please visit our Student Access to Online Evaluations page for detailed information.
Q:    How do I know which classes are evaluated online?
A:    The e-mail we send will list the courses that are available.  Reminder e-mails will show updated lists.  If you complete all the evaluations, no reminders will be sent.
Q:    How many reminders will I receive?
A:    We send two reminders after the first notification.  Each e-mail reminder will include an updated list of classes that require evaluation. You will not receive further e-mails once all of your courses are evaluated.
Q:    I missed the deadline to fill out the evaluation - can I fill it out now?
A:    No online evaluations may be filled out after the survey deadline specified in your notification e-mail.
Q:    I've made a mistake filling out the evaluation.  Can I correct it or take it back?
A:    It is not possible to change or retract your evaluation once it is submitted online since anonymity makes it impossible to identify specific answers.  You may contact the instructor's department to provide clarification.
Q:    Will my grade in the course be influenced by my evaluation?
A:    No, this is not possible.  Instructors and TA's are not able to see their evaluation reports until they have turned in grades.
Q:    Will my instructors know my answers since the evaluation link is through MyUCLA?
A:    No, this is not possible.  Your answers to the evaluation surveys are anonymous and confidential.  All responses are stored in a secure database that is not connected to your identity.
Q:    Will my professor and TA be able to read my comments?
A:    Yes, the report the instructors receive contains the written comments.    

Q:    How can I nominate my professor or TA for a teaching award?
A:    Please contact the instructor's department for instructions on how to nominate a professor or TA.
Q:    Why aren't all courses being evaluated online?
A:    Currently, online evaluation is in a test pilot phase.  Not all departments and programs are participating in the pilot at this time.
