AEFIS - Eval Results - Changing the Minimum Response Requirement (Admin)

AEFIS administrators can adjust the Minimum Response value in AEFIS so that instructors can see their survey evaluation results in courses with low enrollments or low survey response rates.


By default, UW-Madison instructors cannot see the results of their course evaluation surveys unless a minimum of five students have responded.

As necessary, AEFIS administrators can lower the minimum response requirement for a course section, course, department, or college. However, you always want to make sure the course evaluations are anonymous, so carefully consider if you should lower just the minimum for a single course or for the entire department. Below are instructions to change the minimum at the department or college, at the course, and at the section level. 

Changing the Minimum Response Requirement for a Department or College

AEFIS college or department administrators can lower the minimum responses requirement for all courses in their college or department. Changing this setting at the department and/or college level is not recommended. However, it may be useful for departments that contain many small-enrollment courses.

  1. Log into AEFIS with your NetID credentials.
  2. Select the Menu button (three stacked lines commonly called the hamburger menu) on the left side of the page to open the AEFIS main menu.

If you submit Program Assessment Reports you will see all departments, however, you will only be able to edit the one(s) you have rights to edit. Find your department and select Manage on the right side of the page.
