SOS Faculty Experience

Course Evaluations Available

Student Opinion Surveys are available two weeks before a 14-week term ends and one week before a 7-week term or shorter term ends based on the last day of courses as listed in Titan Web (PeopleSoft.) When the survey period begins, students receive an email from containing instructions on how to access their individualized portal and complete the Student Opinion Survey. The portal will contain a list of their courses and available surveys. Students will receive two reminder emails before survey expiration. All surveys expire at 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the term as listed in Titan Web (PeopleSoft.)

Notes:

  • Instructors are notified through email prior to the students receiving the SOS invitation.
  • Faculty & Instructors will be able to check the return rate in their classes & create/adapt their own messaging to their students as needed, but the Instruction and Course Response page is closed to prevent skewed data during this heavy response time.
  • The above timeline is adjusted for courses that do not end on the traditional UW Oshkosh end dates. (Accelerated Nursing)
