Consistent with Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board and board of trustees policy requiring student evaluation of teaching, each semester the teacher and course evaluation process at the University of Arkansas begins with email notification from IT Services. Evaluations are managed through the CoursEval online system and are scheduled to be given the last week of classes, with scores and comments returned to faculty members 72 hours after final grades have been turned in.
All faculty members are expected to take part in teacher and course evaluations each term and follow the policy guidelines except for Law School faculty, those providing individual instruction, or courses with an enrollment fewer than five. Other evaluation tools established by the program or department should be used for assessment of individual instruction including thesis and dissertation direction and for very small classes. The Law School has a different system of student evaluation.
