Colleges and schools at the University of Miami may administer faculty/course evaluations efficiently on the web using CoursEval™ from connectEDU. Along with IT, the Testing and Evaluation Services group provides central support, including survey form design, personalized e-mail invitations and reminders, and summary report access. There is no direct cost to the school. Faculty may view their end-of-semester reports via myUM. Custom report features are available to designated administrators in the colleges and schools. Students complete surveys at their convenience online or via their smart phones or mobile devices without any special set-up. Survey responses are anonymous. Student names or e-mail addresses cannot be connected to any survey data. No survey results are released to faculty until after final grades are posted.
