Do I have to complete the evaluation?

You are expected to complete an online evaluation, or to decline to do so on the online form, for every eligible course. Yale College regulations state:

For the advancement of teaching in Yale College, anonymous teaching evaluations are made available through the Yale University Student Information Systems. Students are expected to participate in this evaluation process for any Yale College course in which they are enrolled. Students who withdraw from a course after midterm are invited but not required to participate.  (Academic Regulations, Enrollment in Courses)


Early access to recorded grades is available on line to students in any Yale College course for which they have completed or actively declined to complete the online course evaluation form through the Yale University Student Information Systems.  (Academic Regulations, General Regulations Concerning Grades and Transcripts)
