GatorEvals Fall 2018 Pilot

Welcome to the Fall 2018 semester and the GatorEvals Pilot

Teaching is a fundamental purpose of the University of Florida and the dissemination of new knowledge in our classrooms, studios, and clinics enables our students and trainees to fully explore their intellectual boundaries. Assessment and evaluation of our courses are designed to enhance instruction and maximize learning to meet the mission of the university.

The main course evaluation system at UF—GatorRater—is technologically outdated and the common set of Likert style questions often fail to adequately assess the many instructional methods utilized within a modern and comprehensive university.  We are taking this opportunity to update all aspects of our university wide instructional assessments.

Three College have graciously agreed to participate in piloting the new course evaluation system, GatorEvals. This fall students in select courses in these colleges will perform the end of the semester instructional evaluations utilizing this new system.

The GatorEvals team is committed to working with faculty, administrators, and students participating in the pilot to enhance the user experience and to facilitate the success of the pilot program, GatorEvals, and the teaching mission of the University of Florida.

The GatorEvals team will reach out to you shortly with additional information if you are part of the Fall 2018 Pilot Program.
