Please review the Instructions for Administering Course Ratings in Class for detailed instructions and Frequently Asked questions. A copy of these instructions will be included in each envelope. We would like to emphasize the following points:

  • Auditors and independent study students do not complete ratings, and forms are not provided for them.
  • Ratings forms are unique and specific to each course section. Please ensure that the course section on the label and forms are correct for the course being rated.
  • Forms are machine scanned, and therefore must be marked properly by students.
  • Forms should not be folded or stapled.
  • Blank forms should be returned with completed forms in the envelope provided.
  • Please do not seal the envelopes.
  • Please check envelopes for department forms and remove prior to returning to IR.
  • If you encounter any problems, please contact knelson3@skidmore.edu or x8309 for guidance.
  • The individual administering course ratings should be instructed to read the directions at the top to students as forms are distributed.
