Some courses are excluded from the SmartEvals system since the evaluation process is not applicable to them, e.g. Psychology courses (the Psychology Department uses a different online course evaluation survey that they will email to their students directly); courses offered at other non-Loyola locations, such as study abroad or study away; etc.
Also, if a course has fewer than 5 students enrolled, then no evaluation will be administered. This is done as a measure to ensure student confidentiality. However, you can request that your students provide feedback directly to you (e.g., email, written note, discussion) or provide you with a letter of support that you could use for your promotion and tenure, etc. that describes your teaching and their resulting learning. If your students are willing, then they are free to provide that type of feedback to you outside of this online course evaluation system.
Don’t hesitate to reach out to OIR (email@example.com) if you think you are missing a course that you think should be included in the SmartEvals system for course evaluation.
