Automated Notification Emails
When the evaluation period begins, students receive an email that lists the courses they can evaluate online and instructions on how to complete the evaluations.
A few days before the evaluation period ends, a reminder email is sent to students who have not completed the course evaluation.
Important: The SurveyDIG reminder emails are sent from "Office of the Vice President", and the subject is "SLU Online Course Evaluations". If you forward your SLU.edu email address to another email account, check your spam folder to make sure these notifications are able to get through.
What is the evaluation period for a course?
For each course listed on the Student Detail Schedule page in Banner Self-Service, a status message will display to the right of the Course Evaluation label. This message indicates if the course is using the online evaluation form and, if so, when the evaluation form is available.
The message will display one of the four options described below. Please note that the dates listed are an example of what will display. If your course is using the online evaluation form, the date ranges will be specific to that course.
