Adding Custom Questions to Course Evaluations (Instructors)

Overview

Course evaluations are conducted each semester using software called EvaluationKIT. The system is accessed via Canvas. A standard set of questions serves as the basis of the course evaluation, but instructors may also add additional questions that would be useful for their courses. Instructors will receive an email at the start of the time frame when questions can be added. They will have two weeks to add up to 20 additional questions. 

Accessing the EvaluationKIT Dashboard

Instructors have two ways of accessing EvaluationKIT in Canvas. Please note that if you have not yet had a course evaluation attached to any of your courses, you will not be able to access EvaluationKIT.

  1. In the main Canvas menu (grey menu at the far left), click Account and then Settings. After a moment, a Course Evaluation link will appear in the Settings menu on the left. Click that to get to EvaluationKIT.
  2. In the menu for your course in Canvas, an Instructor Course Evaluations link will appear at the bottom once the course is loaded. Click that to get to EvaluationKIT.

Either method will bring you to your home screen. Entering via course in Canvas (method 2) will leave the course menu opened, and this can take up valuable space on your screen. To collapse the course menu, click the icon at the top of the menu by the course name.
