Course Evaluations: Faculty Guides

For Course Evaluations conducted via Albert, during the course evaluation period, faculty can monitor the response rate for their course(s) in real time in their Albert Faculty Center.

Once the evaluation period has ended, and within an hour of all grades being posted for the course, faculty will see a “Evaluation Results” or a "Mid Term Eval Results" link where they can view all the responses, quantitative and qualitative, for their course.

Note that not all schools conduct midterm evaluations in Albert. For those that do, results can be viewed as soon as the evaluation period is over; mid-term grades do not have to be posted to view.
