Evaluation of Courses/Modules
- Faculty Handbook Listed as 7.623 within Faculty Handbook
1. Evaluations for students taking courses/modules will be completed and delivered to the program secretary, the Evening and Weekend Studies secretary, or the responsible faculty member.
a. For students taking only courses, these evaluations will be due two weeks after the end of evaluation week and will be sent to the office of registration and records by the program secretary according to the usual procedures.
b. For students taking courses along with other work, these evaluations will be due at the end of the second day of evaluation week and will be sent to the sponsoring faculty by the program secretary with all possible speed so that they can be included in the final evaluation of those students. Adjunct faculty will submit evaluations to the Evening and Weekend Studies secretary the first day of evaluation week.
c. For students taking modules within an academic program, evaluations will be due to the faculty member responsible for each student's evaluation by the end of evaluation week.
2. Credit awards for participation in a course by a student also enrolled in a program or contract will be made by the course faculty and honored by the full-time sponsor. In the most common approach, the course description and evaluation are indented and quoted verbatim (except when the evaluation is too long; the full-time sponsor may then choose to edit by deletion, but not in a way which changes the meaning.) A second method has the course described within the narrative of the larger text of the evaluation with the course title underlined and capitalized to make it obvious. Evaluation of the work is also worked into the narrative. In both cases, course equivalencies usually include the exact title of the course.
3. An incomplete for unfinished student work in a course can be awarded only by the course faculty and must be honored by the full-time sponsor. A letter from the course faculty to the full-time faculty sponsor states the terms and conditions of the incomplete. The full-time sponsor fills out the incomplete form and files it with the program secretary who treats it in the usual way, except that an extra copy is made and returned to the course faculty.
4. Adjunct faculty are not permitted to award incompletes, since they would not normally be in residence during subsequent quarters to evaluate the final work. However, they may award an incomplete after consultation with the dean of Evening and Weekend Studies.
