The course evaluations system was recently upgraded to Blue version 8 for SU23. Revised documentation for Question Personalization (QP) and Subject Management (SM) is posted below but if you have any questions about the new functionality or features please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Washington University Course Evaluation system is jointly maintained by the Office of the University Registrar and each participating school/program. Below you will find information about how to navigate the system. Scroll down to find additional help and contact information.

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions for both faculty/staff and students.
You will be sent a system-generated email when any course evaluation task or report becomes available. You can also access your eval tasks and reports anytime via the Course Evals Dashboard. Click the Log in to your Course Evaluation Dashboard button above. Then enter your WUSTL Key.
Evaluations are administered on a rolling basis throughout the semester. An evaluation for a given course will typically open the Monday prior to the last day of class. End dates/due dates for evaluation tasks are displayed on the Course Evals Dashboard. If you have questions about the evaluation period for a specific course, please contact email@example.com.
Virtually all Washington University schools and programs use WashU Course Evals. For a list of participants see the eval administrator listing above.
Please note: MD program evaluations are administered through a separate system by the Office for Medical Student Education. For more information about MD course evals, please contact OMSEsurveys@email.wustl.edu.
To students: Because your feedback is so critical to improving the learning community at Washington University, there is no formal way to opt out of course evaluations.
To instructors: The decision to evaluate a course is typically made at the school/program level. Courses such as independent study, internship, etc. may be excluded from course evaluations. Please contact the appropriate school/program eval administrator if you have questions about a specific course.
Yes. Question Personalization should be available for all courses being evaluated. QP is not offered for midterm evals. As an instructor, you will be notified via email when QP opens for your course(s). For more information, instructions, and additional FAQs please view/download our How-To Guide: Instructions for Question Personalization
Response rate monitoring should be available for all courses being evaluated. We call this access Subject Management. Instructors and administrators will be notified via email when SM opens for a course. For more information, instructions on response rate monitoring, and additional FAQs please view/download our How-To Guide: Instructions for Subject View Management
Students can link to their course evaluations via the link provided in their invitation email. They can also access course evaluations anytime at evals.wustl.edu, through WebSTAC, or through Canvas.
The Office of the University Registrar generates aggregate feedback reports that include both numeric (quantitative) and comment-based (qualitative) feedback. Individual student identifiers (e.g., names, IDs) are in no way attached to evaluation responses within these reports. Reports are prepared and distributed within a hierarchy that allows higher level users access to all reports in their area.
- Course Instructors and Assistants
- Departmental/Program Directors and Administrators
- School Administrators and School Deans
- University Administrators
The quantitative feedback for select schools/programs is also available at evals.wustl.edu. Access is WUSTL Key protected.
Yes, course evaluation responses are kept confidential. The Office of the University Registrar will report only aggregate feedback and will never include the source of individual responses on any report distributed at any level.
The matching of respondent names to eval responses can only be done by system administrators. Access to this information is an involved process requiring several levels of approval and would only be done in extreme cases (e.g. threats of violence). Instructors and department level administrators cannot match names to eval responses.
Course evaluation reports for end-of-term course evaluations are not distributed until the deadline for final grades has passed and all evaluation periods have closed. The final evaluation period for a given semester may include courses ending after the last day of the regular session.
Course evaluation reports for midterm course evaluations are typically distributed the Wednesday after midterm evals close. Please note, not all schools/programs participate in midterm evals.
To instructors: You will receive email notification when reports become available.
To students: The quantitative feedback for select schools/programs will be available at evals.wustl.edu after all other reports have been distributed. This will only include end-of-term evaluations.
Course evaluation reports no longer have a respondent threshold. This means reports are generated without regard for the number of responses or the response rate. You may see threshold not met on reports generated prior to Summer 2018.
Please contact Course Evals at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also welcome to contact the appropriate school/program eval administrator as outlined above. Users in the College of Arts & Sciences are encouraged to first contact their department administrator.
Legitimate course evaluation emails will always be addressed from WashU Course Evals (email@example.com) and include a WashU logo at the bottom. If you are uncomfortable clicking on the email link, you can always access your evaluation tasks via the Course Evals Dashboard above.
Kim Daniels in the Office of the University Registrar manages the system, with input and assistance from school/program level staff across all participating areas. We are invested in promoting course evaluations at WashU. We encourage participation in the process and constructive use of eval feedback by instructors, departments, schools, and at the university level.
