Faculty Course Questionnaires
Faculty Course Questionnaires
Approximately two weeks after a course section ends, faculty and administrators may access detailed reports within EvaluationKit by following a link in a scheduled email notification. There is not a stand-alone login to EvaluationKit; faculty should follow the links sent to them during the FCQ process. Faculty with FCQs include people who have one or more of the following roles in the Canvas course: Teacher, Instructor, Co-Instructor, or Teaching Assistant. For our regular faculty who have accounts in Digital Measures, the detailed FCQ reports will be migrated into Digital Measures and will appear in the Scheduled Teaching area at the conclusion of a semester. Faculty may find useful this guide on How to Get FCQ Reports.
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.
Public FCQ reports are posted here without responses to open-ended questions. Course sections with fewer than 4 respondents are excluded from public reports to protect student identities. The links are updated at the end of each semester and are searchable within each account area:
The public report links vary because four of six colleges began using EvaluationKit by Watermark to administer faculty/course questionnaires in the Fall of 2019. 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.
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.
For all FCQs administered prior to Fall 2019, and for the UCCS College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences as well as the UCCS Johnson Beth-El College for Nursing and Health Sciences, the Faculty Course Questionnaires (FCQs) are processed by CU-Boulder. The results are available online:
- Fall 2017 - 2019: https://www.colorado.edu/fcq/fcq-results
- 2017 and prior (a different instrument): follow "historical data" options at https://www.colorado.edu/fcq/fcq-results
The online results date back to 2008. FCQs prior to 2008 might be available in the archives of the Kraemer Family Library at UCCS.
