SOI online course evaluation surveys are available to students near the end of each semester, usually during the last two weeks of classes. Students receive an invitation email from Provost Kevin Whitaker with instructions at the beginning of each data collection cycle. Periodic reminders from Dr. Whitaker are sent until a student has completed all their surveys. Instructors can monitor response rates in all of their participating classes through the SOI website. Class reports are usually available to instructors several days after the due date for grades submission.
