Course Evaluations Administered Online via Digital Measures
SUNY Fredonia academic departments have the option of using the Digital Measures platform to conduct their course evaluations. Each semester the Office of Institutional Research, Planning and Assessment (IRPA) sends an email to chairs inviting departments to administer course evaluations online through Digital Measures. IRPA then coordinates facilitation of the evaluations with participating departments, including options for department-specific and instructor-specific questions. Results are accessed through the Digital Measures platform and departments can create aggregate reports using the tools available in that site.
Evaluations for 100% Online Courses
Course evaluations for 100% online courses will be administered using Digital Measures. These evaluations have always been conducted using an online survey and this process was migrated to Digital Measures. Faculty teaching 100% online courses do not have to request this service. The evaluations are automatically generated for all 100% online courses with an enrollment of 5 or more students, regardless of department participation in online evaluations for face-to-face courses.

After the Summer 2011 term, IRPA no longer supports the paper scantron (OpScan) process for course evaluations. IRPA will not order the OpScan forms or assemble course evaluation packets.
Campus Use of Digital Measures
Please note that SUNY Fredonia uses two of the products available through Digital Measures. In addition to the ability to administer course evaluations and the Survey of Student Perception of Learning (SSPL), faculty also use the ActivityInsight platform to enter information related to their teaching, research, and service activities. Faculty use the same login page to access the ActivityInsight information as well as course evaluation and SSPL information.
