Course/Instructor Evaluations

Feedback about courses and instructors is requested from Western students with the opportunity to improve the experience of future students in courses.

The evaluations serve important purposes. They provide:

  • Valuable feedback to the instructor to improve the course and instruction
  • Important information on teaching ability

Evaluations are anonymous and summaries are not given to the instructor until the final student grades have been submitted. Comments about the course is given to the instructor and the Chair of the Department.  Comments about the instructor are only seen by the instructor.

At the end of each course, students voluntarily submit feedback about their courses and instructors. Past evaluations can be helpful when choosing courses and can be found at (click on Students).
