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 creates a Feedback block within the course with a link to the course evaluation once unhidden by the ITRC.

Map Course Evaluations to Your Course

  1. Login to Moodle ISU. For more information, see Accessing Moodle ISU for Faculty
  2. As of Fall 2017, the Navigation Block that used to appear to the bottom left of your page has been replaced. Follow the instructions below to locate and edit your course evaluation.
  3. On the left hand side of the page, in the Navigation Drawer, Click Site Home. (If hidden, the Navigation Drawer is expanded by clicking on the white icon with three horizontal black lines in the upper left corner of your screen.)

  1. On the right side of the Moodle ISU homepage, Locate the Main Menu Block.
  2. Click the name of your course evaluation.

  1. Click Map feedback to courses or Mapped courses, both options shown below

  1. In the text box labelled Search type in the course prefix and number (for example: ENGL 1100) or the course CRN number (Note: If the course is a metacourse, the CRN will not populate the metacourse, so the course prefix and number will be required to search) and select the course from the list that populates.

A dropdown list of all classes with that prefix and number will then be available for you to choose which class you would like to map.

Note: If there are several sections of the same course save time by copying and pasting the course prefix and number into the search bar.

Important: Clicking anywhere on the orange courses above the search bar will delete the courses. This applies to the entire orange icon, and not just the x on the left of the name.  Be careful to not unintentionally delete the mapping to courses in this way when counting or double checking mapped courses.

When the CRN number is replaced by the instructors first initial and last name such as: HIST 4400 - 01, 02: Foundations of Europe (JDoe), Fall 2017 or BIOL 1101 - 01, 02: Biology I (JDoe), Fall 2017, 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. (Each individual section)  

To search for a metacourse, Type the four-letter prefix into the search box. The metacourse name should indicate all sections that are included in the metacourse.

  1. Once the course has been selected, an orange icon with the course name will appear above the search box. When finished select Save Changes
  1. The class has now been mapped to the evaluation.
  2. You can unmap a course by clicking anywhere on the orange icon indicating the class at any time.

Note: Contact Ryan Faulkner at to make the course evals visible to the students.
