AU Evaluate

Information for Faculty

AU eValuate is a web-based, mobile-friendly application that allows students to evaluate their courses and instructors. As faculty, you can preview the survey before it opens, monitor its progress, and view the results after the grading period has closed.

Frequently Asked Questions:

You will periodically receive emails with a link to the system, but you can always reach it from AU Access, Faculty/Advisors tab. Look for the AU eValuate icon near the bottom of the page.

The evaluations for the full Fall, Spring, and Summer terms are typically available during the last week of classes and during the reading days. The evaluations close at 11:59pm the day before finals begin. Mini-semesters follow the same pattern but may be open fewer days. Auburn Online evaluations run the last five days of the term. Holidays and campus closures can affect the schedule. You should receive an email a few days in advance of the evaluation open date, and an announcement after the grading period has closed when the results are available.

All courses will have the following eight questions asked. The first seven questions are presented with responses ranging from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, and the last one is free-form text. Different departments may require additional custom sets of questions.

  1. I was encouraged to interact with the instructor regarding course content (electronically, during office hours, in class, etc.).

  2. I was provided opportunities to cooperate with other classmates about course material (electronically, inside or outside of class, etc.).

  3. I was informed of the instructor's high expectations for my work in this course.

  4. I was provided with an evaluation of my academic progress at regular intervals during the semester.

  5. I was provided ample opportunites to apply my learning in this course.

  6. I was prompted to think critically about the course material.

  7. I was provided an environment that supported my learning in this course.

  8. Please provide additional actionable feedback related to instruction (strengths or areas of improvement).

First, check with your department head, because questions are customized by department. The department head should email before mid-term to request changes.

Log into the system after the survey is built and you will see all your courses, how many responses are expected and received, and an option to preview the survey.

Some courses are not subject to evaluation by default, such as research and directed study, including any courses numbered with 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 96, 98, or 99 as the middle two digits. Exceptions can be made by department if requests are received at before the survey opens. Some colleges administer their evaluations internally and don't use AU eValuate. If your course seems to be missing for some other reason, please email

Students are more likely to respond to the survey if they know you want them to. Consider encouraging them to respond and even offering time in class.

Results open in accordance with the Term Grade Roll Schedule maintained by the Office of the Registrar, the day after final grades are due, assuming all processing occurred as scheduled. You will receive an email announcement when they are available. Auburn Online and mini-semester results are held until the end of the full term.
