Wondering how to increase end-of-course evaluation response rates without compromising student anonymity? Consider giving the entire class extra credit if the response rate reaches a certain percentage, such as 70%. Then challenge your students to reach that goal! Use the Watermark Course Evaluations & Surveys (CES) Response Rate Tracker to monitor the rate of student responses during the course evaluation window. Rates are captured in real time, and when the goal is met, you can all celebrate the accomplishment.
The response rate progress notifications merely provide a static snapshot of your response rates at the time the notification is sent. Instead, the Response Rate Tracker monitoring tool provides up-to-date progress that you can quickly share with your students.
