Step-by-step Instructions:

Note: Once an evaluation form is created, it cannot be edited by instructors in order to preserve any grades already entered on the form. If edits are necessary, please contact us and we can make them easily for you.

  1. Open the Assignment Creation Editor.

    1. For a new assignment, click "+New" in the top right corner.

    2. For an existing assignment, click the three dots next to the assignment name and then the pencil icon.

  2. In the Instructor Evaluation section, click "Create New" under the template library selection.

  3. Give the Evaluation form a title (your students will not see this title, this is simply for you find in your library later).

  4. Click the "+Section" button.

    1. Give the section a name.

  5. Click the "+Criteria" button.

    1. Type in the criterion into the "Criteria Description" box.

  6. Under Points, click the plus sign.

    1. In the first box, type in the MAXIMUM number of points you'd like to award for this criteria.

    2. Click the plus sign next to the box you just created.

    3. In this box, type in the next point value option you'd like to be able to select from.

    4. Repeat step 6 until you have entered all the options you'd like, including the MINIMUM number of points you'd like to award for this criteria.

    5. NOTES:

      1. Best practice is to have six or fewer options.

      2. Negative point values are not valid.

      3. Partial point values are valid with decimals. Fractions are not valid.

      4. Example: If a student could score a maximum of 10 points or a minimum of 0 points, your options could be: [10], [8], [6], [4], [2], [0].

  7. Under Quick Comments, click the box.

    1. In this box, add a preset comment that can quickly be selected while grading. These comments should be things that will be applicable to multiple students. While grading, you have the option to add custom, individualized comments as needed.

    2. Repeat step 7 until all Quick Comments have been entered.

  8. Repeat steps 5, 6, and 7 for additional criteria within this section.

  9. Repeat steps 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 for additional sections of the evaluation form.

  10. Verify your form looks correct.

    1. Look specifically at each section's Section Points.

    2. Look specifically at the Total Points.

  11. Click "Create"

  12. In the Instructor Evaluation template selection library, choose the evaluation form you just created.

  13. Click "Create" or "Update" on the Assignment Creation Editor.

As you create your evaluation form you can delete sections and criteria by clicking the trash can on the entry. You can delete point values and Quick Comments by clicking on the X on the entry.
