Class Climate - Reporting Survey Results

This document explains how an administrator can distribute the results of Class Climate course evaluations to instructors, Deans, and Department Chairs.

Class Climate is a campus enterprise course evaluation system used by UW Colleges to evaluate instructors for purposes of tenure, promotion, merit, and retention. The Student Survey of Instruction program is governed by UW Colleges Senate Policy 301.01, Administering the Student Survey of Instruction. Course evaluations will be administered for all courses every third semester, and may be administered for other courses upon request.

After course evaluation surveys have been generated (see Generating Print or Generating Online Surveys), filled out by participants, collected, and scanned, an administrator needs to log in to Class Climate and send evaluation results to the course instructor, Dean, and Department Chair.

Note: You must confirm that grades for the semester have been entered before you share survey results with the instructor.
