Blue Evaluations

Basic Principles of NIU Blue

The NIU Blue On-Line Course Evaluation System provides an automated way for departments to conduct student evaluations of select course sections. The operation of NIU Blue encompasses four core principles:

  1. Instructors cannot see evaluation results until after the semester is over.
  2. Students must be finished posting evaluations before grade posting opens.
  3. Instructors must be allowed at least 2 days to add personalized questions.
  4. Students must be allowed at least 2 days to complete course evaluations.
