Provost's Technology Group - Course Evaluations

UES Class Evaluations

The Universal Evaluation System (UES) is UT Dallas' tool for course and instructor evaluation. As of Fall 2013, online evaluations are mandatory for all undergraduate and graduate classes with 5 or more students (classes with less than 5 students are evaluated by request). Evaluation responses are anonymous. Evaluation results are publicly available on CourseBook - student comments are not publicly available.

Incentive Prizes

For Fall 2014, all students who complete their evaluations will be entered for a chance to win a prize. This includes any evaluations for the 1st 8-week sessions (if applicable). If you did not fill out the 1st 8-week session evaluations, you will not be eligible for the prizes, even if you later fill out all the full-term semester class evaluations. The prize drawings will take place throughout the evaluation period. Actual prizes to be announced at a later date.

Priority Access to Grades

In addition to being eligible for the incentive prize drawings, students who complete ALL their course evaluations will also be given priority access to view their grades in CourseBook before grades are made available in Orion. CourseBook is updated several times each day. Once your professor enters the grades, they will appear in CourseBook after the next refresh.

Email Based Class Evaluation

You may be invited to evaluation specific classes and/or instructors via an email from the UES system. Each email is personally generated for the recipient and contains a web address (URL) which will link directly to the evaluation page. Just click the link embedded in the email to start the evaluation - no login is required.

Got a UES Token?

If you have received an UES token (a unique, one time use code), it may be used to perform a class evaluation. In the box below, enter the token code exactly as it appears in your token document, including dashes to begin your evaluation. All tokens have an expiration time and can be used only once.

To start the evaluation, enter your token code and press the start evaluation button.

Viewing Evaluation Results

All evaluation results are openly available in CourseBook. School administrators may contact the Provost's Technology Group to learn about the UES Reporter - an alternate way to access results.
