Course evaluation cost draws criticism

By: 

Though end-of-course evaluations are mandatory, there has been a recent push to reduce costs by moving them online.

The cost of printing, issuing and processing state mandated end-of-semester course evaluations is approximately $250,000. Under House Bill 2504, universities are required to have students complete the five-question evaluation posted on the HB 2504 website for each course, along with the professor’s syllabus and CV. The university is required to make the HB 2504 website accessible from its homepage.

Two senators from the Associated Student Government, Kiley Cook and Meghan Bates, authored a resolution in November in an effort to improve the HB 2504 website.
