Faculty Results Dashboard

  • To access dashboards please login to WPConnect and click the Faculty & Advisors tab and you will find Evaluations under Faculty and Academic Admin.
  • Select which term you would like to view feedback for. Please note that within your account you will see more terms than you have taught. The terms that have feedback will have a response count. If the response count is 0 then you have no feedback for that term. You can ignore the pages and widgets. The example below shows no responses, but your dashboard will display the number of responses received for your courses in the given term.
  • Once you have selected the appropriate term, you will be able to see overall feedback for the courses you taught in that term.
  • To view results for a specific course, use the CourseID filter to select the course you would like to view. To view another course, please select which course you would like to view and uncheck the previous course. To clear your filter, you may also use the Reset to Default button
  • To download your feedback, please use the Export Dropdown located on the upper top right corner of the screen and select Download Dashboard.
