Course evaluations to be disseminated online through Canvas

Beginning this semester, Mississippi State instructor and course evaluations will be disseminated online through the Canvas Learning Management System.

Once the evaluation forms are available, students can access them by utilizing the “Class Climate” dashboard in Canvas. Students will see which course evaluations have been submitted and the close date for evaluations that have not been completed.

Faculty members will have a course evaluation dashboard within Canvas allowing them to see response rates for their courses and the date the course evaluation is set to close for each of their courses. They will also receive an email from the Class Climate system alerting them that the course evaluation has opened.

Faculty members can remind students to complete their course evaluations and/or set aside time during a class period to complete the evaluations on a computer or mobile device. In keeping with the university’s long-standing practice, faculty must leave the classroom while evaluations are being completed. Course evaluation results will be available the day after final grades are posted to Banner by the Registrar’s Office.
