Update about IDEA course evaluations changes related to COVID-19

Academic Affairs, with input from around the college, has worked to provide status codes related to every section taught in spring 2020. The Center for Data Science (CDS) is using those codes – and checking for updates frequently – to determine if course evaluations should proceed.
 
Any section still providing ongoing instruction, regardless of if the section transitioned from face-to-face to virtual, will receive an evaluation as would have been normally scheduled. If a course has been delayed or paused, the evaluations have also been delayed or paused with the hopes that we will be able to resume the evaluation when/if the section is able to resume.
 
As a final note, some have asked about adding additional questions related to the current circumstances to the evaluation. In discussions with academic leadership, it has been decided LCC will not be adding institution-wide questions to IDEA in favor of sending out a separate survey via SurveyMonkey.
 
If there are any additional questions or concerns, please contact CDS at lcc-cds@lcc.edu.
