Instructor and Course Evaluation System

The Instructor & Course Evaluation System (ICES) is used across campus as the official instructor and course evaluation for faculty and teaching assistants. The ICES results are often utilized for course improvement, promotion & tenure review, teaching award decisions, and student registration assistance (via our "Teachers Ranked as Excellent by Their Students" list). ICES results are only one indicator of teaching effectiveness and should be used in conjunction with other measures of teaching quality such as student learning outcomes, observations, document analysis, and self-review. NOTE: We currently have both a paper and online version of ICES, but are moving toward campus-wide use of only ICES Online.
