Teaching Evaluation: ICES Online

ICES Online is an entirely web-based student rating system. All UIUC online courses can use ICES Online. ICES Online is also used by some departments for all of their courses. We automatically load all courses for these departments and all online courses. We only load instructors (faculty or TAs) that have greater than a 0% responsibility for the course (as listed in Banner). Department course schedulers are listed on the Registrar's page

NOTE: While the system will send notes to the students, it is still very important that instructors also remind students about the online course evaluation. 

The system uses the university's authentication system (NetID & password) to validate instructor, student, and administrator access. ICES Online is coordinated and housed on a secure server. Those instructors that use ICES Online will still be eligible for The List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by Their Students as well as Longitudinal Profiles, which are used for tenure and promotion decisions. Normative comparisons will not be reported until sufficient data are available.

Special Notice - The student component of the ICES Online interface was recently revamped to make it convenient to complete ICES forms on mobile devices. This will make it easier to administer ICES Online in class which will help maximize student participation. If you decide to do this, we recommend that it be done at the beginning of class during the last week. All instructors and teaching assistants should leave the classroom during this time.

The ICES Online item catalog has been supplemented with new items pertaining to online courses and the use of technology. To access the list of these items along with the item categories they belong to please click here.
