UES Class Evaluations
The Universal Evaluation System (UES) is UT Dallas' tool for course and instructor evaluation. As of Fall 2013, online evaluations are manditory 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 publically available on CourseBook - student comments are not pubically available.
All Students: Chance to Win an Apple iPad mini or iPad mini with Retina display
For the Fall 2013 evaluation cycle, the University is offering three incentive prizes. All students who complete evaluations are eligible to win one of three prizes. The prizes for this term are two Apple iPad minis and one Apple iPad mini with Retina display. Three drawings will occur over the evaluation period - students are entered into the drawing as soon as they have completed ALL their evaluations - one prize is awarded for each drawing. The sooner students respond, the more likely they are to win - early responders have up to three chances to win. Each student can only win one prize. Drawing details, rules, and winners are available at eval.utdallas.edu.
Winners will be contacted by the Office of the Provost with instructions on receiving their prize.
Priority Access to Grades
In addition to being eligible for the iPad mini 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.
