FAQ: Finding Evaluation Data

Question

Where do I find old evaluation data from courses I've taught?

Answer

Evaluation data is located different places depending on several factors (semester, systems used, your college/department).

IMPORTANT NOTE: We will do our best to retrieve any and all archived data you request. From experience, roughly 95% of the time we are able to find data from courses. However, we cannot guarantee your data is in our archives. It is quite possible that data was never collected for your course, if we cannot locate it. We suggest you also check with your department to see if they have the data, which oftentimes is in paper format since printed reports were generally provided to departments each semester.
