The Evaluation Process

The evaluation process includes faculty evaluation of your work, your self-evaluation, and your evaluation of faculty. Evaluations are submitted and accessed through My Evergreen.

Faculty Evaluation of Student Achievement

Your faculty will write an evaluation of your academic achievement during Evaluation Week at the end of your course, program, or contract. If you are in a team-taught program, one or more faculty may participate in writing the evaluation.

Faculty generally share their evaluation with the student at a one-on-one evaluation conference during Evaluation Week. Once they've written the final version, your faculty will turn in the evaluation for transcript review and final posting to your academic record. You can view all of the faculty evaluations of you in your Academic Progress on My Evergreen.

You have 30 calendar days from the time you receive an evaluation to seek an amendment. Aside from corrections, revisions are approved by your faculty and Registration and Records. If you don’t complete a class or receive no credit, you will not have an evaluation for that offering in your transcript.

See the section titled "Concerns About Evaluations and Credit Awarded" on the Deans Office Conflict Resolution page for more information.

Parts of your evaluation

  1. Description of the learning objectives and assignments.
  2. Evaluation of your academic achievement.
  3. Credit Equivalencies showing how many of your credits were in which subjects.

Sample evaluations

Student Self-Evaluation

At the end of each offering students write self-evaluations and turn them in through You should reflect on what you’ve learned while taking this offering: summarize your accomplishments, new understandings, and goals for the future. You may find it useful to refer back to your self-evaluations while working on your annual and final Academic Statements. Submitting a self-evaluation to your is NOT the same as submitting it to your transcript. Transcript submission is optional. Once submitted to your transcript, however, it cannot be removed or revised. For questions about evaluations, contact the Registration Office at (360) 867-6180.

Student Evaluation of Faculty

Evergreen faculty members are asked to solicit evaluations of their work from all of their students. Students write the Student Evaluation of Faculty at the end of a quarter, or when leaving the program.

There are multiple ways to write evaluations of faculty. Ask your current faculty what type of feedback would be useful for them to learn and grow in their teaching. The evaluations that you write of your faculty will be part of their regular review and can influence the growth in the faculty member’s teaching plans and goals. See the Faculty Handbook for details.

Turning in your evaluation of faculty

Students typically bring their Student Evaluation of Faculty to the faculty-student evaluation conference. To have it included in your faculty's portfolio, you’ll need to submit it through My Evergreen. If you prefer not to deliver the Student Evaluation of Faculty to the faculty member in person, you may submit it online and choose not to show it to the faculty until your credits post.

If you want to provide a copy for your faculty member's dean for any reason, send it by campus mail to Academic Deans, Library 2002.

“It’s rare to have a detailed essay from your professor that not only reflects your skills and learning but who you are as an individual. My transcripts all sound like letters of recommendation. They reflect everything I learned and everything my teachers saw within me.”
