Navigating OCQ: How can instructors customize questions?

At Indiana University, the Online Course Questionnaire (OCQ) system (sometimes called Course Questionnaire or Online Course Evaluation) is used to administer course evaluations online at the Bloomington, IUPUI, Kokomo, Northwest, IUPU Columbus, South Bend, and Southeast campuses. Instructors may add up to three qualitative and three quantitative customized questions.

Important:
You will receive an email invitation to submit additional questions for each course. Once the deadline has passed, the option to add and update questions will no longer be available.
Note:
Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge have known incompatibilities with the Course Questionnaire application. UITS recommends using a different browser (e.g., Chrome, Firefox, or Safari).
