Responding to Evaluation Narratives in ESTHER

Instructors who would like to respond to themes present in the evaluation narratives have the option of posting a one-time instructor response into the system. The ESTHER interface has been programmed to recognize the instructor of a course based on their login information.

For example, Professor Miles Davis taught BLUE 211, INTRO TO THE COLOR BLUE. His evaluation responses presented a central theme: his music did not have any vocals. Professor Davis would like the opportunity to explain why his music had no vocals.
