Summary and Custom Reports

The VPTL Evaluations team can quickly generate summary and historical reports, as well as custom reports, based on the course evaluations data. To consult about custom reports and summary reports, please contact

Batch Excel Reports

In addition to the Reports Browser, some users can generate Microsoft Excel reports by going to the Reports menu and selecting Batch Excel Reports. These are summary reports in Excel for a specified term, school, department, and instructor or all instructors.

Rollup Reports

Rollup reports, also located on the Reports menu for permitted users, allow you to combine and filter results for summary or comparison purposes. 

Due to the large number of custom questions for course evaluations starting Autumn 2015-2016, it is not possible to select either the Common questions, or create a Comparison report for this data (options shown below). The Rollup report for All questions will complete, but includes all custom questions as individual report items.

Rollup Report

The Rollup Reports are compatible with the data from before Autumn 2015-2016. The SLS Clinics form was used for all course evaluations at this time.

Teaching Evaluation Summary

The Teaching Evaluation Summary, found on the Reports menu, is a quarter by quarter summary report of the two general summary statistics (Course Overall Mean and Instructor Overall Mean) for the reports from before Autumn 2015-2016. These are retained for historical reporting purposes, but as above, they should not be directly compared to the current results.
