Instructor added custom questions allow Instructors to add questions to the evaluation for a specific course section. These questions appear at the very end of the evaluation.  Administrators need to designate permissions to allow Instructors to add additional questions.

Questions may only be added up until the time the administration opens. The results will be available when reports are released.

Instructors assigned to cross-listed course sections will be able to independently assign questions specific to each section in the cross-listing, while instructors in a course section with more than one instructor (team taught) will be able to collaborate on the questions that they will ask.  Both instructors will see questions added by the other instructor on their preview as well as the results to those questions when reports are released.

Full Administrators as well as Report Administrators will be able to see the additional questions that were added by the Instructors as well as the responses from students.


Step 1: Log into your faculty experience homepage at

Step 2: In the top navigation bar, click Course Evaluation Questions.  If your administrator has enabled you to add additional questions to a section, you will see the "View/Edit Evaluation" option. If custom questions are not enabled, or if the administration has already opened, you will be able to view evaluation questions by clicking "View Evaluation".


Step 3: On the left-hand side of the page, you will be able to view the questions that are currently on the evaluation.  On the right-hand side of the page you can add, and edit the custom questions for the section you are in. Click "Edit" to create or edit your questions.
NOTE: Custom questions cannot be copied from previous terms. If you wish to use the same custom question as a previous term, you will be able to view those questions by using the Change Term drop-down in Step 2 above.  


You will have the option to add single select or textbox questions.


How to add a Single Select question:

Choose New from the top menu and then choose Single Select

Add in your question text and answer choices. Answer choices should each be listed on a separate line. If you wish for there to be a Mean/Standard deviation available for the question when viewing your report, do not forget to choose the scale values option from the drop down at the bottom. 

Ascending - Scales would start with 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.

Descending - Scales would start with 4, 3, 2, 1, etc.


Choose OK when finished. 


How to add a Textbox question

Choose New from the top menu and then choose Textbox.

Add in your question text. You may also optionally choose the size of the textbox as well as a character limit.


Choose OK when finished. 

You may continue to add additional questions as necessary. Click on the text of the question to update it, or the response choice to change the value or settings.
