Teaching and Learning.
If the goal of course evaluations is to strengthen teaching effectiveness, then the process should be designed to boost the potential for meaningful feedback. With Campus Labs® Course Evaluations, you can conduct both summative and formative evaluations, making it easier for students to share insights with their instructors. Our solutions include flexible surveys, tools for institution-wide and nationwide comparisons, and powerhouse reporting for both faculty and administrators.
Aggregate, compare, and export your data to measure teaching and learning effectiveness and simplify your accreditation reporting process. Dashboard views offer real-time reporting and response rates for insights into course and faculty performance. Dynamic reporting features, designed for both faculty and administrators, make it easy to share and publish valuable metrics.
Use our ADA-compliant, LTI-ready tools to democratize access, drive response rates, and engage your entire campus community in the evaluation process.
- Provide your stakeholders with easy access to surveys
- Activate alerts, embed surveys, or launch them directly from your LMS
- Keep your faculty informed with real-time response rates and evaluation reports
Powered through a single portal, our automated features let you focus on what really matters: instant access to insights for better decisions.
- View all your reports in a single portal
- Designate custom start and end dates for your evaluations
- Quickly access data imports, reports release, email notifications, and report exports
Slice and dice your course evaluations data for a customized experience that meshes perfectly with your institution’s hierarchy. Use our templates for your data imports, surveys, emails, and reports as a starting point. And to keep your institutional branding intact, you can include your campus logo on all your emails, surveys, and reports.
Our question bank allows you to organize your survey questions according to specific objectives, core topics, faculty-supplied topics, faculty roles, and course types. And by using our Feedback tool to conduct formative assessments, your faculty can map their teaching throughout the academic term and discover actionable insights based on student feedback.
Our Rotations feature offers flexible, on-site surveys for certain disciplines, especially the health professions. Even when students are engaged in hands-on training that takes them away from campus, you can track their experiential learning progress with confidence and efficiency. Teaching sites and supervisors can be added to any survey to accommodate even the most complex academic calendar.

Advancing Innovation of Teaching and Learning with a More Holistic Approach
In our fourth episode of the Data in Higher Education Series, JD White, PhD, talks with Ken Ryalls, PhD, about shifting the paradigm for teaching and learning. Most current approaches, for instance, emphasize using course evaluations to evaluate a faculty member instead of focusing on professional development to improve instruction methods. Ken advocates a holistic system that neither ignores nor overemphasizes student feedback, and rewards classroom engagement, improved teaching, healthy risk-taking, and a pursuit of innovation. Ken Ryalls is President of IDEA, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the improvement of learning in higher education through research, assessment, and professional development.
