Course Evaluations: Mapping Courses Course Evaluations


Mapping is the process of linking course evaluations to each class (section) to be evaluated.  When a course is mapped to a course evaluation, it automatically displays a Feedback block within the course with a link to the course evaluation.

  2. Click Search courses.

A dropdown list of all classes with that prefix or short name will then be available for you to choose which class you would like to map. Only one course can be mapped at a time.

Note: Academic courses short name format is: [Department][CourseNumber]-[Section]-[Semester][yy] (e.g., MATH101-01-F16).

When the section number is replaced by a single letter (and the instructors first initial and last name are also added) such as: HISTg4405-JDoe-F16 or BIOL200-JDoeA-F16, they are multisection (meta) courses.

Note: If your instructors are using metacourses (combining multiple sections of a course), you can map the course evaluation to the metacourses instead of the separate “child” courses.  

To search for a metacourse, Type the four-letter prefix into the search box. If the metacourse includes a graduate level course along with the undergraduate course, add a “g” after the prefix: “ACADg.”

  1. Once the course has been selected, Click Map feedback to courses.
  1. The class has now been mapped to the evaluation.
  2. You can unmap a course by clicking the X next to the class.
