Embry-Riddle online course evaluations are a fast and easy way to give feedback on your courses. Evaluations are an important process at ERAU and make a difference in helping deans, chairs and faculty enhance courses, review faculty performance and meet the University’s goals.

All feedback is anonymous and confidential. Data is compiled and available to your instructors in an aggregate, summary report and only AFTER final grades are submitted. The evaluations are housed by an independent vendor, EvaluationKIT, and all student identifying marks are purged before reports are compiled.

High response rates represent a voice of the class rather than the opinion of a few. Honest and thoughtful responses are essential for giving instructors and their deans and chairs useful feedback for improving the class for the future.

    How can my responses be anonymous?
    Are my responses confidential?
    Your course evaluations are stored off campus, on EvaluationKIT servers. Faculty and administrators do not have access to data until reports are released from EvaluationKIT, when grades are submitted. When reports are released, the data is only reported in aggregate with no identifying marks.
    If responses are confidential, how am I able to receive email reminders that I have not yet completed my course evaluation?
    EvaluationKIT software can determine the courses you need to evaluate and makes these courses available to you. EvaluationKIT also has the functionality to allow email reminders to be sent to non-responders at pre-determined intervals (4 days, 10 days and 13 days after the evaluation opens). Instructors are able to download lists of respondent/non-respondent students for follow-up only. This list only provides: Course ID, Student first and last name, email, ERNIE user ID, Student ID and Submit date. No data is associated with this list. Results are not produced for courses with fewer than 4 completed evaluations. Summary reports are provided to faculty only after grades are submitted. Summary reports DO NOT include any identifying student information. Written comments are provided as submitted.

    How are the results of course evaluations used?

    No. Every student is given the opportunity to give us feedback on their courses. Be the voice of the class rather than the opinion.

    No. Reports will not be available until after final grades are due.
