FOR STUDENTS

How do I complete my course evaluations? 

NOTE: Beginning in Summer 2016, you will no longer evaluate your courses through SAGE. 

  • You will receive a direct link in an email to you to access to your course evaluation forms. 

  • You also may access your evaluations through any course that has a LATTE site.

  • Once you login, whether it is through LATTE or the link in your email, you will be able to see links to all the evaluations that are ready for you to complete as well as the date by which you must complete the evaluation.  Please complete an evaluation for each course listed.

    • To save your answers and move onto the next section, just click the “NEXT” button
    • Please remember to click the “SUBMIT” button after you complete each survey
    • If you are unable to complete the survey in one session, make sure to save your review by clicking the “SAVE” button (under "OPTION" on mobile)
    • To resume a previously saved survey, return to your original email containing the link or log in to LATTE.  If your session times out prior to submitting, please return to your original email or to LATTE

New this year - you may complete your course evaluations using your mobile device as well as your computer!

If you experience any problems at all, please let us know via email at evaluate@brandeis.edu

Why should I complete my course evaluations?
Course evaluations are used in many ways:

  • By all students, to gain early access to their grades each term
  • By graduate student TAs, to assemble their teaching portfolios
  • By your fellow students, in selecting courses
  • By professors, to improve their teaching
  • By deans and department chairs, in evaluating faculty
  • By award committees, in selecting teaching award winners
  • By departments and committees, in evaluating candidates for tenure and promotion

Will I be reminded to complete my course evaluations?
Yes, multiple times.  An e-mail will be sent to all students announcing the start of the evaluation period. The e-mail will include instructions for completing the evaluations, along with a link.  E-mail reminders will be sent periodically during the evaluation period to students who have not yet completed their evaluations.

Are evaluations confidential and anonymous?
Yes, evaluations are confidential and anonymous. We recognize that this is a primary concern when completing course evaluations online.  Please be assured that the online evaluation system keeps a record of who has submitted an evaluation in order to ensure that no student can submit more than one evaluation in any course; but it disassociates the student’s name from the evaluation that he or she submitted.  Thus, we know whether or not you have submitted an evaluation, but have no record attaching your identity to any one evaluation.   Because evaluations are completed online, there’s no need to worry about a professor recognizing your handwriting.

FOR FACULTY

What courses are evaluated?
All courses that have regular class meetings are eligible to be evaluated.  Undergraduate courses can be excluded from the evaluation list only with the approval of the Dean of Arts and Sciences.  The graduate schools set their own policies on evaluation of graduate courses, i.e., courses numbered 200 or higher.

What evaluation form is used?
The university has a standard evaluation form that is used in all courses. (Separate evaluation forms are used for teaching fellows and physical education classes.)  Currently, no questions can be added to or removed from the evaluation forms. Please click here to view a copy of our course evaluation forms for Instructors, Teaching Assistants, or Physical Education classes.

When are evaluation results available?  
Results are usually available within a day after final grades are due.

How are evaluation results accessed?
Beginning in Summer 2016, you will no longer access your results through SAGE. 
Instructions for accessing results coming soon!
