Student participation in the course evaluation process is very important. Faculty members learn a great deal about their teaching as well as the content and organization of their courses. The feedback provided is closely followed by the College Deans, Department Chairs and other senior administrators to assess the educational experience at Emerson and better inform personnel and curricular decisions. We need student feedback to make this process a success.

Instructions for Students

Students can access their course evaluations through two options:

Option 1

  1. Students will receive a personalized e-mail link sent to their Emerson College e-mail address 1–2 days before course evaluations open.

Option 2

  1. Sign into the course evaluation system using your Emerson login credentials. 
  2. Review your responses to the survey items making sure that your responses and comments are intended for the instructor and the course.

The responses you provide will remain confidential. Faculty will not have access to the evaluations until after grades are posted and the online application being used to collect responses prevents faculty from seeing any names, ID numbers, or any other identifying student information when viewing the evaluation.

    • Go to Faculty Course Tools
