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.

Evaluate Now!

Want to submit an evaluation now? Log in and we'll show you every evaluation that's currently available to you and whether you've completed it. (You can even go back and change a submitted evaluation if you need to.) Evaluations for the full-term session will close on Monday, May 11th at 11:55pm.

Incentive Prizes

For Spring 2015, 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.

CourseBook is updated several times each day. Once your professor enters the grades, they will appear in CourseBook after the next refresh.
