Faculty Course Questionnaires
Faculty Course Questionnaires
Beginning with the Fall 2019 semester, four colleges began using EvaluationKit by Watermark to administer faculty/course questionnaires. The four colleges are: School of Public Affairs (PAFF), College of Education (EDUC), College of Business (BUSN), and the College of Engineering & Applied Sciences (ENGR). The Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing & Health Sciences (JBEL) began in Summer 2020 and the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences (CLAS) will begin using EvaluationKit in Fall 2020. Public FCQ reports beginning with Summer 2020 are available here:
Due to the pandemic-related disruption of teaching and learning, Spring 2020 FCQ results will not be posted publicly. Faculty and administrators will have access to the FCQ results within the software according to their security roles. As to the inclusion of FCQs in faculty reviews, individual faculty members should check with the faculty assembly and/or academic affairs leadership -- we expect the use of Spring 2020 FCQ results will be used in reviews at the discretion of individual faculty members.
One week after grades are due for a course, faculty and administrators may access detailed reports within EvaluationKit. The reports will also be migrated into Digital Measures and will appear in the Scheduled Teaching area within a faculty member's account. The detailed reports (with comments) are expected to be used in faculty reviews.
Per guidelines from the UCCS Faculty Assembly and FCQ Task Force, faculty course questionnaires will be administered during weeks 14 and 15 of regular 16-week courses. FCQs for short courses will be administered 7 days prior to and through the last day of the course. Individualized instruction such as thesis/dissertation and independent study sections will be excluded from FCQs.
Per recommendations and approval of the UCCS Faculty Assembly, the FCQ instrument contains 14 questions. The three open-ended questions are not included in public reports.
