Day, graduate and Chang School students may participate in evaluation. You must be currently enrolled in a Ryerson University course that is subject to the FCS survey.

This is your opportunity to make your voice heard.

First, your professors are given the anonymous results of the evaluations. These results provide them with valuable information about your opinions of the course and the way it was taught. Professors take these results very seriously in planning their subsequent courses.

Second, the results of the first fourteen questions are shared with the specified members of the administration of Ryerson University. These results are one important component in the performance evaluation of faculty.

Finally, you now have the opportunity to provide written comments directly to your professor, online.

The survey consists of three sections: 1) University Standard Questions, 2) Optional (Course-Specific) Questions, and 3) Supplementary Comments where you can provide a written feedback to instructor/professor.  Your responses to the first two sections are strictly anonymous and confidential.  Although your Ryerson username and password is required to log into my.ryerson.ca portal to complete Faculty Course surveys, any identifying information is stripped from your responses at the time the survey is submitted.

Using a unique username/password is necessary to make sure you complete the survey(s) that you are eligible to complete, to ensure each survey is only completed once, and to contact you should you win a prize for participating.  However, your professor will NOT be able to identify how you answered the questions, and in fact will not even know who completed the survey and who didn't.

Results of section 3 of each survey where you make comments about the course or the instructor/professor are anonymous, unless disclosure is required by law.  Please bear in mind that you are accountable for what you say under Ryerson's Student Code of Non-Academic Conduct PDF filewww.ryerson.ca/senate/policies/pol61.pdf.

Please note that although some Faculty/Course surveys will be available before the final course drop date, only responses from students who remain in the course will be included in the aggregate results provided to the faculty and department. As in normal practice, no student identity will be linked to any individual responses.

The Faculty/Course Survey results will become available to professors soon after the grade submission deadline of a given semester.

No, you are not required to complete the faculty course survey.

Send an email to fcshelp@ryerson.ca if you need help with or have questions about Faculty/Course Survey.

If you need help with your Ryerson ID and/or password, contact CCS help desk at 416-979-5000, ext.556806, or send an email to help@ryerson.ca.

Normally, some course sections are also evaluated on paper in classrooms. Paper-based evaluation has been suspended in the Winter 2020 semester due to COVID-19. Spring/Summer evaluation is administered online only.
