Online Course and Instructor Ratings
The Evaluation System will allow an instructor to give formative evaluations to students in their courses and review the results. The system will contact students to notify them of upcoming evaluations automatically. End of term (summative) evaluations will also be managed through the evaluation system. Colleges, departments, and instructors will add their own items (questions) to the end of term evaluation and will choose whether they want to use it or some alternative campus system. Colleges and departments will be able to use the system to give formative evaluations to their students only.
More information about the work being done is available at Evaluation Status. Check out the System Development Info and Links below for more information.

The VT Online Rating System (VTORS) was developed from code received from Columbia University in mid 2004. The system was previewed in early 2005. The system was piloted in Fall 2005. The system is currently being redesigned and rebuilt as a Sakai tool. This work was started at Virginia Tech.
