UT Tyler will open the standardized university course evaluation system for two weeks, beginning 12:01 a.m. Monday, April 22. The evaluation period will close at 12:01 a.m. Monday, May 6.

  • To evaluate instruction in courses, students should click on the Evaluate My Courses link on their myUTTyler home page, and then complete the easy 15-question online evaluations for their spring semester instructors and courses.
  • If you experience difficulties in completing the course evaluations in myUTTyler, please use instructorevals@uttyler.edu to report the problem.
  • If you have questions about the process, please refer to the FAQs.

In appreciation for completing evaluations before May 6, the university will grant respondents “priority access” to view their semester grades one week earlier than non-respondents. Students who complete course evaluations will have access to grades on myUTTyler by May 16, and they will be eligible to win one of three mini iPads. Students who do not complete course evaluations will have to wait until May 22 to have access to grades through either myUTTyler or Blackboard.

Some classes, such as labs, independent study, student teaching, internship and practicums are not eligible for evaluation and will not appear on the list of courses to be evaluated. If students have no courses eligible for evaluation, they will have priority access to their grades.

Evaluations are anonymous, and instructors will have no ability to view individual responses. Once compiled, results will be added to the university’s existing Faculty Evaluations website. A high response rate is important so that the results posted are representative of the views of the entire student body.
