Course evaluation

Help improve the uOttawa academic experience by evaluating your courses.

Five reasons to evaluate a course

You can make things change! 
Your opinion can make the difference in the structure and the content of the course and, foremost, it can enhance student experience!

You can make a better choice of courses! 
Look at past evaluations for a course or a professor to make your decision. You will know what to expect!

It’s all online! 
You can evaluate your course anywhere and at anytime during the evaluation period with any device. It’s super easy!

It’s anonymous! 
It is impossible for your professor to see your name or student number. Professors can only see their results once the final grades are considered official. Your answers and comments are therefore confidential.

You can help other students! 
Your feedback will benefit the new cohort just like you already benefit from the evaluations of students that came before you.
