Blue FAQs

Does every course at SLU use Blue for course feedback?
No, nontraditional courses like Independent Study, Thesis Research, and Dissertation Research are usually excluded. If you need more specific information about which courses are included in end-of-term course feedback surveys for a given semester, please contact the department chair.
What is the end-of-term course feedback survey period? Is it the same for all courses?
No, the dates and length of the feedback period for a course vary based on the length of the course and its end date. During the feedback period, the student will see the “due date” and completion status for each open course feedback survey in Blue.
Why do I keep getting email reminders to complete my course feedback survey?

Even though you might have already completed a survey for one course you are enrolled in, if you continue to receive email reminders, this indicates that you have additional end-of-term course feedback surveys to complete in Blue.

Are course feedback survey responses anonymous?

Yes. Instructors do not have access to individual student names and responses. The responses are reported in aggregate to the instructor after grades have been submitted and the semester is over.

Course feedback survey reports are released to instructors after the grade due date for the term. There is usually a delay after the due date while waiting for all instructors to submit grades. Instructors will receive an email notification with links to access the reports in Blue once available.
