Customized formative evaluation

The customized formative evaluation is an optional tool tailored to your individual needs that provides feedback on specific aspects of your courses. You can choose up to 10 questions from the bank of customized questions to be added to the official evaluation of your course. You alone will see the answers to the questions you have added once the final marks are considered official.

To include these questions, proceed as follow:

  1. You will receive an email inviting you to add your customized formative questions on  EvaluAction. Click on the link provided in the email or log in to VirtuO. Under the "Teaching and research" tab, click on the EvaluAction Platform link.
  2. On the EvaluAction platform, you will see a list of all the courses you are teaching at the moment. Choose one of these courses to add questions. Note that you can add the same questions to evaluations for all your courses.
  3. The questions are categorized by theme. In each category, click Show section to see all the questions in a given theme. Select the questions you wish to add to the questionnaire (maximum of 10 per course).
  4. Click Submit.
