Note:  WAOL has its own evaluation process.

Here are some suggestions to help ensure students will receive the evaluation and to encourage them to fill it out and submit it.

  • Before you order your evaluations, ask your students to update their email address in the system. Have them go tohttp://www.seattlecolleges.edu/onlineservices.aspx. From here select Campus, then under Personal Info select Update your address, email or phone. They will be asked to type their SID and PIN.
  • After you order your evaluations, tell your students that they should receive one in an email message. 
  • If a student doesn’t receive an evaluation, ask them to send you a preferred email address. You can send them an individual evaluation using their preferred email address.
  • Tell students that the evaluations are anonymous and you won’t be able to view them until after you’ve submitted your grades.
  • Send students a reminder when the submission deadline is eminent (see important dates below).
