Teaching Evaluations Data: Spring 2010 – Present

Source for spring 2014 and forward: CoursEval, http://www.qc.cuny.edu/evaluate

  • The data can be filtered by semester and division using checkboxes, by department or discipline using the pull-down menus, and by instructor or course number by typing in a name or a course. (Instructor names are in the database as “Lastname, Firstname”: if you are having trouble finding an instructor, try searching by last name only.)
  • After filtering, export the displayed data by clicking on the Download button in the bottom right. Choose “Crosstab” to generate a CSV (comma-separated values) file with numbers that can be copied and pasted directly into the table in the CV document.
  • Start over using the Reset button (bottom left).
