Under “Set Options” (right menu of CourseEval HQ), you have the ability to set your default preferences to be used across the evaluations that you distribute. Your options will be pre-selected and pre-populated every time you distribute evaluations.
Click on “Save” to store your preferences.
You may customize the title of the label for your evaluations (i.e. Student Feedback, Course Evaluation, Instructor Evaluation, etc.). This label will be used for the button on the left menu of the course and the label of the survey in announcements, modules, assignments that are added (as per your choices) when surveys are distributed to Canvas courses.
Please note that you must set your custom label before you distribute evaluations in order for the label to be applied. Changing the name of the label after you distribute evaluations will not be applied to already distributed surveys – only to future ones.
Set your default preferences, as per your local policies and procedures, and you will not check boxes every time you distribute evaluations. You may change the security and participation settings for one or more survey at the individual level, optionally.
Please note that you must set these options before you distribute evaluations in order for them to be applied to subsequent ones. Changing the options after you distribute evaluations will not be applied to already distributed surveys – only to future evaluations.
Depending on the formatting of course names and SIS IDs in your Canvas environment, it may be redundant to include both of them in the evaluation display. This setting allows you to disable showing the course SIS ID in the dashboard and other displays of the evaluations.
You may also choose to not show the instructor name(s) in the evaluation displays. This is particularly important if there are many ‘teacher’ roles in the course and the focus is on evaluating the instructional design and setup and not a particular individual. If the “Show Course Instructors” button is unchecked, the instructor names will not be listed on the Dashboard, PDF with the results or the email notifications that are distributed.
