Student FAQs

How do I access and complete the course evaluations?

You can access your course evaluations via My ASU or by going to You can complete the evaluations on a computer or mobile device (e.g. smartphone, iPad, Kindle).

Why are course evaluations important?

Course evaluations are important tools for both  faculty and their departments.  First, as faculty read the evaluations of their courses, they gain a better understanding of how well they are meeting the learning needs of students.  Instructors use this feedback to develop and improve their courses.  Further, departments use course evaluations  when they review instructors’  teaching effectiveness  each year. These annual reviews influence decisions about salary increases, contract renewals, and promotions.

Do the instructors view these surveys prior to the end of class?

Instructors will not have access to course evaluation results until after grades have been posted.

Are they anonymous?

The surveys are anonymous. The course evaluation system will log that you have submitted your survey, so that you will not continue to receive reminder messages, but student responses are stored separately from this information and cannot be associated with student names or IDs. Instructors will only see aggregate results, and will never see any student identifiers. We do not even provide instructors with lists of students who did/did not complete the survey.

The link to the survey is not available.

We are sorry that you are having problems accessing your course evaluations. Please try going and log in with you your ASURITE ID and password.

I want to share my opinion on things not covered in this survey.

If you have specific feedback about the course or instructor that you could not provide on the survey, we encourage you to e-mail the department chair/school director with your comments.

What if I enter the portal and I see someone else’s name and someone else’s courses?

Sometimes the cache for a web browser holds a previous user's information from that computer. Try to use a different browser, a different computer, or clear the cache. Then attempt to access the evaluation.


I dropped (or withdrew from) this class – why are you asking me to evaluate it?

The survey was sent only to students who were enrolled in the class after the deadline for withdrawals. If you believe that you dropped or withdrew from the class, we recommend that you contact the ASU registrar’s office to clarify your status.
