Faculty evaluations are one of the primary means of providing teaching feedback to instructors. Your professors are seeking feedback on your courses with the goal of making them better. We are keenly aware that if Stony Brook University isn't finding ways to improve our classes we will lose our reputation as a world class university that cares about the education of its students. We can't do that without your feedback and comments.

Does anyone really look at and think about what we write?

YES! The majority of Stony Brook instructors value what students report on the evaluations, so the more specific and constructive your feedback, the more likely the professor will take your comments to heart. Your feedback can lead faculty to revise teaching methods, change textbooks, revise assignments, and make other changes to help you learn.
