End-term Course Evaluations

Stanford's end-term course feedback system encourages instructors to reflect on and respond to student perspectives as a way to improve teaching and promote learning. End-term course evaluations primarily consist of surveys that students fill out at the end of every quarter.

Learn about this system, key dates, how to customize the survey, access data reports, and more at the Evaluation & Reseach website.
