Student Feedback Survey (SFS)

NOTICE:  As of the spring 2019 term, UTA has moved from IOTA to SmartEvals.  You can access SmartEvals here, or consult this guide to get a quick tutorial.  To access your evaluations prior to spring 2019, please visit and log in using your Single Sign-On.

As part of UTA’s efforts toward continually improving the quality of teaching, we have developed the Student Feedback Survey (SFS) program, a campus-wide program that affords students with an opportunity to reflect upon their experience in each organized course (lectures, labs, seminars, and practicum) and offer relevant feedback.

About two weeks before the end of each regular 15-week term*, each student enrolled in eligible classes will receive an e-mailed invitation from UT Arlington Course Evaluations (via SmartEvals) to participate in the SFS.

SFS is administered online and the feedback is submitted anonymously.

Once the final grades for the term have been officially certified by the University, summaries of the SFS data are provided to both the professor and his/her supervisors. These reports help members of the faculty identify which aspects of a course should remain unchanged and which aspects might benefit from revision.

* For Accelerated Online classes, regular classes that last shorter than 15 weeks or Winter and Summer Intersessions, the survey will go out about one week before the last day of each class.

Surveys for all Accelerated Online courses end two days before the official course end date of each course.

In accordance with state law, UTA provides public online access to summary statistics for key survey items.
