Course Evaluation Questionnaires

Each department has the option to select its own version of the form. We typically limit each Department such that faculty must agree on a single version of the questionnaire, but each Department also has the option to add a second TA questionnaire evaluation to be used for course sections that are TA-led (CRN driven). With sufficient lead time, we are willing to make other accommodations for unique circumstances within Departments that cannot be accommodated by our current approach.

  • The version your department selects may be among the options on the Faculty Affairs website, or your department may choose items from UIUC’s ICES Library of items to create a customized teaching evaluation form. Additionally, if your department already has course evaluation questions, those can be used as well.*
  • If your department does not yet have a teaching evaluation or you want to change the one you have, please see http://cte.illinois.edu/teacheval/ices/pdf/ICES_Catalog.pdf.
  • Your Department’s TA Evaluation can also be customized using the ICES library items referenced above.
  • If you have any questions regarding the version your department has selected, please contact your Departmental Point of Contact or the Office for Faculty Affair.
  • Common across the forms is the initial set of (6) six recommended core questions.
