  • My Tasks
  • My Classes (with RoomFinder integration)
  • My Websites (with easy access to mobile-friendly class websites)

The new format was also a major update to the underlying code. We're now using a flexible framework that will make it easier for us to implement new features in the future (eventually).

New service: Eater Evals launches with Fall 2012 faculty evaluation results

The ASUCI, Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE), and the Office of Information Technology (OIT) are pleased to announce that results for faculty evaluations are now available to students online. This new service was made possible by eTech (http://etech.uci.edu).

Access evaluation results through Eater Evals at:

https://eaterevals.eee.uci.edu

The Eater Evals name was selected from entries submitted by undergraduate students. Congratulations to the two students who submitted the winning entry -- thanks, Drake (junior majoring in Biological Sciences) and Grant (junior majoring in Business Economics)!

Quantitative results are available only for Senate-level faculty members (assistant, associate, and full professors, as well as lecturers with security of employment), so not all instructors will be listed. No qualitative/textual responses will be displayed. Results will be available for 4 academic years, starting with Fall Quarter 2012. Faculty members can also opt-out of releasing their results to Eater Evals through the end of the 3rd week of classes each term.
