The following types of courses will automatically be excluded: 5904 and 6904 (i.e., graduate project and report), X944 (seminars), X964 (field study), X974 (independent study), and X994 (undergraduate research). Other courses may be excluded on a case-by-case basis using the process described below.
The decision to exclude a course should be determined at the level of the dean or associate dean of the college. Courses that are excluded from the SPOT system should use an alternative method for collecting anoymous student feedback. For example, paper-and-pencil-based questionnaires or the Tests & Quizzes tool in Scholar may be used to gather similar feedback.
