This article covers instructions for students to evaluate a course and instructions for faculty to access a course evaluation.
Note: The course evaluation link is only activated for students 21 days prior to the last day of their section and will remain open for 4 days following the last day of the session.
To determine that date, look up the sections in eWeb – it is based on the end date of each section.
As an example: shown below – the majority of sections run – 8/26 to 12/15 for Fall 2020.
So based on the end date of 12/15 for these sections – minus 21 days = 11/24.
- Students must log into Eastern's Office 365 portal (Eastern Email) https://www.office.com/?auth=2 and access Self Service (eWeb).

or from the left-hand menu bar at the very bottom is the all apps icon, once in the All apps section find and click the Self Service (eWeb) icon.
