Course Evaluations

What are course evaluations?

Course evaluations are part of Hawai‘i Pacific University’s commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. They provide students an opportunity to make their voices heard about how to improve course content and design, teaching effectiveness, and create better learning environments for our students.

Advantages of the new course evaluation system:

For Students:
  • It’s easy, convenient, secure, confidential, and students have 24/7 access to complete their course evaluations during the evaluation period.
  • Students that complete all their course evaluations by the due date automatically participate in the “Early Grade View Incentive” program and may view their final grades 1 week early!
  • Courses with 4 or fewer students enrolled will not be provided a university course evaluation to protect the anonymity of the students.
  • Course evaluations are tailored by faculty members to your specific course for your direct feedback.
