1st Block Course Evaluations in Blue by Explorance



Course evaluations for Fall 2022 semester, 1st block courses will open on October 10 and close on October 17. The evaluations will be administered through Blue by Explorance, the tool selected late spring by a RFP committee composed of one faculty from each college and appropriate technical staff. As part of the initial rollout of Blue, this email is being sent to provide you with information about the tool and the evaluation process.

We are updating our website for course evaluations. This can be found at http://weber.edu/ie/course_evaluations.html. Please take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the features of the tool by reading through the FAQ sections. Please know this is a “work-in-progress” and your feedback will be helpful. At the conclusion of the 1st block evaluation period we will reach out to you for additional feedback.

Remember, the evaluation instrument was developed by a faculty task force and approved by the Faculty Senate. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email OIE@weber.edu.
