At LeBow, course evaluations typically open during Week 8 and remain open until Finals Week. Course evaluations give students a chance to share feedback on their courses and instructors, and in doing so, help LeBow improve as an institution.
Below is the standard set of questions that students are asked about each LeBow course at the end of the term. Each question is rated from 1 (lowest) to 4 (highest). Students also have the opportunity to provide additional open-ended comments or feedback on the instructor or the course.
