UIS online classes are evaluated by students... online. These evaluations include the very same questions that are administered on campus.

Often times these comments are more deeply revealing than the likert scale question responses.
We encourage mid term formative evaluations to assure that faculty members get complete feedback in time to make changes before the end of the term. One tool commonly used for formative assessments is http://www.getfast.ca/ .
