UNLV Decision Support Course Evaluation Documentation and Policies

  • Communication regarding course evaluations should be directed to the unlvevals@unlv.nevada.edu email address. Response to inquiries will be conducted during normal University business hours.
    • Each semester, a deadline will be enforced related to course evaluations, specifically, a deadline for colleges/departments to opt in for semester course evaluations, to finalize course and faculty lists to be evaluated, and for specifying changes to evaluation periods.
    • For Fall 2019, the deadline is 23:59, September 27, 2019.

  • Courses will NOT be added after the deadline for opt in has past.

  • Faculty who would like their course(s) to be evaluated via Blue must go through their department/college to get their course(s) added to the system.

  • During the second week of the semester, Administrative Assistants or responsible parties will receive an email notifying them that their tasks are ready in the Blue System for opt-in. Available information is based on the most recent data extract from PeopleSoft (which will occur the first business day of the second week of the semester).
    • When opting in courses Administrative Assistants must note which instructors are not correct in the system, and correct these issues in the PeopleSoft system.
    • Administrative Assistants or responsible parties MUST also indicate if a course is a modular course.
    • For modular courses, please notify us with the course end dates so we can change the evaluation period for those courses in the evaluation system.

  • If no modified evaluation period is specified by the deadline, courses will be evaluated the two weeks prior to final exam week during the fall and spring semesters, and during the final week of summer term courses.

  • Modular courses will follow the summer term evaluation procedure, with evaluation occurring during the final week of the course.

  • Per UNLV policy, courses WILL NOT be evaluated via Blue during or after the final exam period.

  • Evaluation reports will be made available to faculty and departments no sooner than a week following the grade submission deadline.

  • Each faculty member is responsible for the secure storage of their own course evaluations from semester to semester. These will be needed for your reviews, and tenure and promotion documents. Should you lose access, your department should have a copy of your evaluations on file. Decision Support WILL NOTbe responsible for providing access to previous term files.

  • Each department is responsible for the secure storage of their faculty and department evaluations for future use. As Administrative Assistants, Department Chairs, and Deans change, new employees will need to be able to access these files from within the department/college. Decision Support WILL NOT be responsible for providing access to previous term files.
