Course evaluations have no impact on your grade whatsoever. Instructors do not get to view any of the results until after final grades are submitted and they have no way to associate your responses with individuals. Completing the evaluations are voluntary, but they are your one opportunity to have a voice and an impact on the quality of education at Stony Brook University. Just like you, instructors cannot learn and improve unless they get feedback about how they are teaching.
