Evaluation Resource Central
Evergreen is a unique college utilizing a narrative system to assess student learning and achievement. Through the evaluation process, both students and faculty learn from their work within a particular program and have the opportunity to understand more about their work as a whole and to recognize connections and common themes within a program.
This information does not act as a substitute for a visit with one of our writing tutors. It is provided as a starting point for your work. We strongly recommend scheduling an appointment with one of our writing tutors for more tailored, one-on-one conversations about your evaluations.
Self Evaluations (Written when leaving program. Including Self-Evaluations in your transcript is now optional, not required.)
The self evaluation provides specific information about what you've learned throughout a particular program. Taken together, your self evaluations tell the story behind your academic life at Evergreen. As always, attend our quarterly Self-Evaluation Workshops held weeks 9 & 10.
Academic Statement (New!)
An Academic Statement is a graduation requirement for all entering undergraduate students starting Fall 2013. Students must write an academic statement of up to 750 words. In the statement, students summarize and reflect carefully on their liberal arts education. Students begin work on the statement when they first enroll, then develop and revise it annually under the guidance of faculty. The final version becomes an important part of each student's transcript. Undergraduate students who enrolled prior to Fall 2013 are highly encouraged to include an Academic Statement in their final transcript upon graduation; however, it is not required.
For all undergraduate students, the final Academic Statement is due Friday of Evaluation Week of the quarter they plan to graduate.
An Academic Statement is optional for graduate students and must be submitted no later than one quarter after they leave or graduate.
Submitting the Academic Statement for transcript in 2012-13
Students can generate an Academic Statement in the Evaluations section from their my.evergreen.edu Student Menu. Students will need to print their final statement, sign, date and turn it into the Registration and Records Office.
Student Evaluations of Faculty (written when leaving program)
The faculty evaluation provides an opportunity for you to provide substantive feedback to the faculty about their work. Faculty evaluations reflect how well and to what extent your faculty member was able to support you in your academic life and work.
Program Evaluations (optional; typically only when requested by faculty)
The program evaluation is intended as a space to provide feedback on what did and didn't work within the program itself. Often, faculty will provide a list of questions for your consideration if they request a program evaluation.
Forms for typing up formal evaluations are available here. There are no forms for program evaluations.
