Important Announcements

  • Course Evaluations for 2013 Spring
    Students who are enrolled in courses which use online evaluations will be sent their survey emails on April 29th. Based on the timeframe sent to instructors, they may notify their students when it is preferred to take an evaluation for a class. For any incomplete evaluations, students will receive reminders every 3 days in their Saclink webmail (also available through MySacState).
  • Video Tutorials for Report Creators
    To help instructors quickly learn about the new survey system, we have a few video tutorials. There are 5 videos available mostly between 1-3 minutes, with the longest being 10 minutes (which covers how to create a survey). Video Tutorials
