This document describes how AEFIS department administrators can view response rates during course evaluations, which is useful when trying to increase response rates. You can reach out to instructors in sections that have low response rate.
The Provost office has listed some best practices that are intended to guide departments and programs in achieving high response rates. Another helpful practice is to check response rates while the course evaluations are being completed. You can easily spot if one section has lower responses, and can reach out to the instructor to remind their students to complete.
- Using the left navigation menu, navigate to Surveys.
- Find the survey that you would like to view response rates and click Manage from the right Actions column.
- You will be brought to a dashboard page for the survey. In the left column, select Survey Results.
- The Survey Results by Institution window is displayed for this survey. You may expand the information by clicking on the expand icon, and can expand all the way to the course section level. The important information while a survey is running is the response rates. Once expanded to the department level, you can quickly scan for any sections in red percentages, which are below the average response rates. As you move closer to the survey end dates hopefully you will see higher response rates. Some departments have response rates over 95%, however, the average on campus for a department is 55%.
