The Office of Strategic Planning & Assessment facilitates Lone Star College’s Course Evaluation process.
A Course Evaluation (Course Eval) is a voluntary, online survey completed by students near the end of a class session/term. The evaluation form collects feedback from the students about their classroom learning experiences. The purpose of Course Evals is to help instructors improve course content and teaching practices. Students’ participation in the Course Eval is voluntary and their responses remain anonymous. The instructors do not have access to the results of the evaluation until after grades have been submitted.

When and where can students access the Course Evaluation survey?
Course Evals open shortly after the class Official Day (varies by class session – e.g., 1st 8-wk, 16-wk, etc.) and close the last day of class (varies by class session – e.g., 1st 8-wk, 16-wk, etc.).
The Course Eval only takes a few minutes to complete and can be taken on any device (online, phone, tablet, etc.).
