Spring 2016 Faculty Evaluations

Each semester the GATORRATER evaluation system gives students the opportunity to provide anonymous feedback about their instructors and courses. The Spring 2016 GATORRATER faculty evaluation period opened Saturday, April 9.

The GATORRATER evaluations are helpful to students and faculty. University of Florida leadership (e.g., department chairs, deans, and academic executives) may review the reports to gauge student satisfaction of their teaching and learning experience, seeking ways to improve overall instruction. Results may also be used to evaluate and guide instructors’ career development. Instructors can use their results as an aid to course planning. For students, accessing the GATORRATER evaluation reports can assist with schedule planning, because survey results provide a clearer picture of what to expect from specific instructors. Each semester’s evaluations are published online. The more responses, the more accurate a picture students will have of what a class will be like.

Spring 2016 GATORRATER Evaluations close at midnight on Friday, April 22. Visit to add an evaluation. Past evaluation results can be viewed at: Students: your voice makes a difference!
