Report Format & Rating Scale

On December 4, 2020, the Academic and Student Affairs Council approved a recommendation from the shared governance Faculty Development and Evaluation Committee to change ACC’s course evaluation 1) report format and 2) rating scale. These changes were prompted by software upgrades to meet requirements for fully online course evaluations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

1) Report Format: On your course evaluation report, you will find the “Global Index,” or the overall average from your course evaluation (see the orange highlight in the screenshot below). ACC course evaluations are based on a 6 point scale and the average in this example is a 5.3 out of 6. You can see a sample report here.

2) Rating Scale: Based on historical data, the new rating scale will not impact the rating scale distribution. The approved rating scale now aligns with the following numerical scores:

Excellent Very Good Fair Needs Improvement Unacceptable
5.5 – 6.0 > = 5 > = 4 > = 3 < 3

Course Evaluation Rating Scale

    • 5.5 – 6.0 “Excellent”
    • > = 5 = “Very good”
    • > = 4 = “Fair”
    • > = 3 = “Needs Improvement”
    • < 3 = “Unacceptable”
