General information:*Please note that some information may be available only on the Greek version of this website.
According to a decision by the Senate (16/12/2015, no 27/2015), from Spring Semester 2015-16 completing the Questionnaire is compulsory for students. Students will gain access to their grades the day after they submit the questionnaire for each of their courses. 
The Senate has also decided that results from the questionnaires will be incorporated into the assessment portfolio for instructors. The Department Chair will also be given access to the results and if deemed necessary the Chair will seek solutions in cooperation with the Centre for Teaching and Learning Director.

The information collected by the Evaluation Questionnaire is used by UCY to improve Study Programmes and the quality of teaching. 

It has recently been revised by an ad hoc group, appointed by the Senate Committee on Studies and Student affairs, and by the KE.DI.MA. Board. In constructing the questionnaire a wide spectrum of questionnaires used at other universities were examined (some samples can be found here ). Reliability studies that were undertaken both internationally (relative material can be found here ), and locally at UCY were also taken into account (see Questionnaire Study at the University of Cyprus[in Greek] Appendices: Α, Β).

The Questionnaire is completed by students online via BannerWeb. UCY teaching faculty do not have access to individual evaluations or any personal data. They only receive anonymous reports, after grades have been announced, with statistical information about the evaluation results of the whole class.

Since the Fall Semester 2005-2006 distribution has been compulsory for all instructors (Senate's decision - 243th meeting [in Greek]).The following are exempted:

Courses with fewer than five registered students (decision of the Rector's Council, meeting 5/2006 [in Greek]),Tutorials (0 credit hours) (decision of the Centre's Board, 19th Meeting, 8th June 2007),Courses which do not require class teaching - research stage, exams, thesis etc, andSeminars (decision of the Centre's Board, 22nd Meeting, 9th June 2009).

According to a decision by the Rector's Council (Meeting 29/2007 [in Greek]), academic staff are responsible for each of their assigned courses and should therefore have access to the evaluation analyses for courses taught under their supervision by special teaching staff and postgraduate students. The academic staff can request a copy of the analyses from the Chairperson of their Department.

The Questionnaire is an important assessment tool. All suggestions from the teaching instructors and the students are welcome, please email us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
