Online Student Reviews of Courses

Student reviews of courses provide students with an opportunity to provide feedback about their courses and serve as one source of information about the quality of instruction at Appalachian State. Individual student responses are confidential unless students reveal their identity in written comments. Results of online student reviews of courses are released to faculty after grades are due.

University-Wide Questions

Determined by course type, one of the following two sets of core questions are assigned to all online student reviews. Departments may choose to interchange these approved sets of questions for specific courses as they feel is most appropriate for each of their course types. In addition to the university-wide questions, departments and/or colleges/schools may add their own standard set of questions to online student reviews.
