Course Evaluation Policy for Spring 2020

This post has been archived. The information below may be outdated.

Pitzer College will collect student course evaluations this semester, Spring 2020. These evaluations will be collected online (through IT) and submitted to the office of the Dean of Faculty. Course evaluations can be collected at any point remaining in the semester, and faculty may want to consider including questions in their evaluation that ask about the perceived impact of switching to online work. Going forward, faculty members may elect to eliminate course evaluations from this semester from their file when they are up for future review (e.g., contract renewal, tenure). If a faculty member elects to include course evaluations from this semester in any future reviews, APT and AHRC committees should assess them with reference to the circumstances of this semester. The Dean of Faculty’s office will attach a note to course evaluations and summaries it receives from IT that specifies when course evaluations were collected and that flags that a number of disruptions were encountered this semester due to COVID-19.
