How are course evaluations conducted and the results shared with faculty members at Chapman University?
Students at Chapman University evaluate faculty members using an online platform called ClassClimate at the end of every term. Results of those evaluations for each class and instructor are emailed as a PDF attachment to every faculty member once the reports become available. Results of these paperless evaluations are generally sent to faculty members within two weeks after the date grades for the term were due. Paper-based course evaluation results (such as in Fowler School of Law) take significantly longer due to the time it takes to scan all paper evaluations for the term.
Faculty members should save the PDFs with their course evaluation results for use in their annual reviews and e-portfolios for critical, tenure, and promotion review.
I can't find my prior course evaluation results that I saved after receiving them via email. What can I do?
Faculty members are able to access the ClassClimate website only when there is no active data collection or open grading period. Because Chapman University has multiple academic calendars in operation simultaneously, we strongly suggest all faculty members review and store the PDF copies of their evaluation results that they receive via email, instead of relying on 'on-demand' access to the ClassClimate website. There are very few times during the year when the ClassClimate website is open to faculty members for direct downloads.
If we are in a period when no active data collection is in process, the results for the past six academic years can be downloaded directly through ClassClimate (link below).
Evaluations older than six years must be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
How are results viewed directly in ClassClimate?
If you are a faculty member accessing your own evaluation results, please login using your Chapman username and password.
If you are a Dean or Chair accessing evaluation results for faculty in your area, please login using the special role-based username and password that was given to you. If you do not have this information, please email email@example.com.
Below are some documents with instructions on how to access ClassClimate. The documents located in "MyWindow" will require your Chapman login.
I tried to log into ClassClimate to view my evaluation results and it says my account has been deactivated. Why?
This means we are currently collecting evaluation data or there is an open grading period. You will need to rely on the emailed PDFs you previously received or, if you need immediate access, you may ask your dean/chair who reviews your course evaluations to download your past results and send them to you.
I no longer work for Chapman University. How can I get a copy of my course evaluations?
If you are no longer employed at Chapman University and need access to your course evaluations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. with your name and the course numbers and sections, terms taught, along with the academic years, and we will assist you.
For any questions related to ClassClimate, please email email@example.com.
