Course Evaluations: Faculty


Course Evaluations are used to improve the quality of teaching and learning at Pepperdine University through feedback to individual faculty members. Responses to the course evaluations provide information on students' perceptions of their engagement, learning outcomes, the instructor's behavior, and course activities, and help guide changes in future iterations of the course and/or the instructor's teaching.

To access the online course evaluation system, faculty may log into WaveNet and ensure that the "Faculty" tab is selected. Under the "Academic Resources" heading, select the "Online Course Evaluations" link. Then log into CourseEval with your Pepperdine NetworkID and password. Professors may also log on directly to

 Can students receive their grades before completing the online course evaluations?
