All ICES questionnaires have two global items at the beginning. Instructors may select up to 23 items in addition to these global items. Please note that many departments have a set of mandatory items, referred to as a core, for their instructors and TAs that will be printed automatically. An instructor can verify if their department has a core and the number of items here. Please check with your department if you will not use your department core. Instructors can use any combination of options 1, 2, and 3 to include up to 23 items or select a complete form as listed in option 4 below.
1. Department core: Instructors can have only the department core which is printed automatically. If additional items are to be needed, use options 2 and/or 3.
2. Student Core: Any instructor, excluding TAs, may select the six University Student Publication core items. These items can be found in the below question, "What is the university student publication and what questions do they use?" Please note that if these items are selected the Illinois Student Senate will be granted access to the data for these items and the two global items. Fill in the ‘Yes’ bubble labeled University Student Publication in box 7 of the Faculty Request Form to employ them.
3. Instructor-selected items: You may select up to 23 items from the ICES catalog. You may choose a different set of items for each section since you fill out one request form for each section of students who provide feedback. You also need to know that ifyou select too many items, some will necessarily be omitted. Questions are printed in this order: departmental core items first (if there is a department core), then the student core items (if selected), and finally the instructor-selected items.
4. Complete form: You can select one of the complete forms if you wish. These are ready-made questionnaires that are available for you to use if your department doesn't have a core and you don't want to choose items from the catalog. Note: The system doesn't allow for using both a complete form and instructor-selected items on the same questionnaire.
Caution:Please do not use questionnaires generated in past semesters, as they cannot be processed. Photocopied questionnaires are not acceptable either.
