Most of our institutions have special policies in place for grading students. Typically, these are designed to avoid putting an additional burden on students in this challenging time. Often they involve giving students options - e.g., pass-fail vs a letter grade or withdraw without penalty. But what about student evaluations of faculty. Today our provost sent out an announcement explaining the University of Houston's position as proposed by a faculty committee. The key features are : “Once completed, student course evaluation results will be available online for review by the individual faculty member. The faculty member will have the opportunity to review their evaluation results (both quantitative scores and qualitative comments) at the individual course and/or section level and to then make a choice on whether or not to retain the results of the evaluation or to mask a particular evaluation in the official record.”
