Additional Reports for Report Creators

Report Creators have a variety of reports and comparison options for use within Class Climate.

If you're getting started with your first report, a good place to start is with the first 3 minutes of this YouTube instructional video (courtesy of the University of South Carolina):

 

 

 

ATCS will e-mail PDF reports to your primary department contact for online evaluations. Each e-mail will pertain to an individual faculty member, and contain separate PDFs for their individual course-sections, as well as an overview summary of that instructor's sections.

Should you need to make additional reports for comparison or analysis, several other techniques are available in Class Climate:

  1. Response Count Summary (for Response Rates)
  2. Individual Reports
  3. Summary Reports - Department Summary
  4. Summary Reports - Groups of Courses or Sections
  5. Taking Your Reports a Step Further...

Response Count Summary (for Response Rates)

Department Report Creators can view the quantity of responses to all their department’s online evaluations in a single report. These response overviews can be created at any time during or after the evaluation period.

If an instructor contacts their department office for response rates, this feature helps the department Report Creator provide the quantity of submitted evaluations. By knowing the quantity, the instructor can get determine the percentage by dividing the quantity by the number of students on their roster.

Note: Internet Explorer 10 user have been experiencing some trouble with this feature, therefore please use another browser to do this such as FireFox, Safari, or Chrome.

Instructions for Report Creators:

  1. Login to Class Cimate at www.csus.edu/surveys
  2. In the left-menu, click the “Reports” icon.
  3. In the 2nd column, select the current semester.
  4. In the 3rd column, select your department's evaluation.
    Note: Please only select your department's evaluations, they'll only work for you.
  5. Click the “Continue” button.
  6. Click the “Download” button.

Dean Report menu

Note about the title: Although the system calls it the “Report to the Dean” it’s just a title
(it won’t actually go to a Dean, just for the Report Creator to download).

Minimum of 1 response needed: If an evaluation didn’t get any responses yet (zero responses), it won’t show up on the overview report until it receives at least 1 response.

Multiple Evaluations / Versions: If your department uses multiple evaluation types, please repeat these steps but choose a different evaluation for step 3. Evaluations which have been updated throughout the semesters have different versions, the most recent has the highest number at the end.


Creating Individual Reports

(one report for each section of a course)

Log into Class Climate: http://www.csus.edu/surveys. Click the Survey Creator Login button to log in.

Once logged in, click Folders on the left. Then click Create new Folder (a button). You can name the folder anything. For example, if creating reports for individual instructors, you might call the folder "Individual Reports".

Click on the new folder to go into it.

At the top, in the "Create reports" section, choose the menu option called Any Compilation (from the menu labeled "Summarized Reports").

Click Next.

In the "Subunit" box (left, top), choose your department [or college]. For "Survey Period", choose the current semester (or semester that you'd like data from). For "Course Type", select all of them by clicking once on the first course type, holding the shift key down, and clicking the last course type on the list. For "Questionnaire", choose the survey for your department.

In the "5. Course(s)" box, click on ONE of the sections under an instructor's name.

On the next screen, you'll see your newly-created report (this is the screen where all of your reports will be available from, as you create them). To access the report, look in the second-to-last column, labeled "Report". There's an HTML version and a PDF version. Click on the one that suits you the best.

Taking Your Reports a Step Further...

There are a number of different reports that you can create, using your Report Creator access -- in addition to those mentioned above. For example, let's say that you would like to compare your summary report from the History 100 courses with the summary report for the History 110 courses. To do this, you'd create a summary report for all of your History 100 courses, and then another report for all of your History 110 courses (following the instructions above for "Creating Summary Reports (for a group of courses or sections, etc."). Then, your THIRD report would be a comparison report of those first two reports. This is done using the "Comparisons" report option -- "Batch Profile Lines" report (remember - the option to choose your report type is in the "Create reports" area at the top -- where you choose your report type).
