Austin Community College (ACC) maintains a comprehensive set of pages on the processes and procedures for full-time, adjunct, and distance education faculty evaluation. The course evaluation process is led and supported by the Office of Faculty Evaluation. Course evaluations are conducted every semester and it is required for each course. A Course Evaluation FAQ page is also available for reference.
For additional information, please refer to Administrative Rule # 6.07.001
Course Evaluations are Completely Online!
EASY ACCESS ONLINE
Students will be able to access course evaluations online via Blackboard. Students will know when the course evaluation is available or about to open, and when it closes.
Faculty will be able to see how many course evaluations have been submitted while the course evaluation is open, and after grades are submitted, see evaluation results.
FOCUS ON TEACHING
With course evaluations online, faculty will no longer use precious instructional time to conduct course evaluations. Faculty can focus on teaching and students on learning.
Course Evaluation Calendar
The course evaluation calendar outlines the dates for when course evaluation opens for each session. If your course evaluation isn’t available by the date listed on the course evaluation calendar, please contact the Office of Faculty Evaluation: email@example.com.
Course Evaluation Results
Course evaluation results are now available online. To access them, please log in through the evaluation link available in your Blackboard course.

Are you a department chair needing access to course evaluation results for your faculty? Please log in to your BOX account to access them.
Due to a change in the ACC BOX security protocol, Department Chairs are now promoted to the “co-owner” role of their course evaluation folder(s) in the ACC BOX portal. This privilege allows Chairs to add users or remove users from their departmental folder(s).
As the co-owner of the departmental folder(s), it is important that you regularly review the “Share” settings of your folder(s) and remove any users who should not have access. You are going to see a few TLED staff listed in your share setting, this is because your departmental folder(s) are stored under “Instructional Services” and the Faculty Evaluation Office staff need access to your folder(s) in order to provide you the course evaluation reports.
If you encounter any problem adding users or removing them from your BOX folder(s), you may submit a Mojo ticket. An IT staff will assist you. Visit this ACC BOX training resource site to learn more details.
