Why must Blackboard Course Evaluations Close so Early?
I feel participation rates for the Blackboard course evaluations would increase if they did not close on dead day. I cannot speak for everyone, but personally I am much more likely to complete the evaluations once I have completed my finals and am no longer spending time studying. Is there a reason they close the evaluations on dead day?
We contacted the people from Academic Affairs and asked them about extending the deadline for the Blackboard Course Evaluations. We will keep you informed and thanks for your suggestion!
Thanks for the feedback! We will ask to see why they choose dead day to end the evaluations and if they can be extended further in the future.
I agree! I was going to fill them out when I had more time during finals week because I had so many projects and other homework due dead week that there was no time to do course evaluations. I was really upset when I found out that they were closed!!!
