Fordham’s Online Course Evaluation System

(eXplorance Blue/Evaluation) 

For Students


Online course evaluation system

Fordham University is committed to obtaining student feedback regarding their classroom experiences in order to provide faculty with anonymous suggestions and assessments to form a basis for improvement. The University along with an outside company, eXplorance, has provided an online course evaluation system called Blue/Evaluations allowing students to complete the course evaluation surveys online via a laptop, tablet, or smart phone.


To complete your course evaluation surveys online

The instructor will inform you  which class day the Evaluations will be completed in class. Students will receive an invitation email from the Arts & Sciences deans indicating that course evaluation surveys are now available. This email will be sent to your Fordham Gmail account. Please be sure to check this account on a regular basis once your instructor has announced the date on which you will fill in your evaluation. Once received, click on the course evaluation link. This link will take you to a webpage listing all your courses for this semester. Click on one of the courses, and an instruction page will open. Please read through and then click the Next button at the bottom of the page. This will take you to the survey itself. Complete the questions as instructed. Some questions will be rating questions, other may ask for comments. Questions that have a red asterisk (*) next to it are required questions. After you have answered questions on a given page, click the Next button at the bottom of the page. Once you have completed the entire survey, click the Submit button at the bottom of the page. A thank you page will appear that contains a link that will take you back to the page with the list of your courses.

The online course evaluation system saves your responses on each page, allowing you to exit a survey without losing the answers that you have already entered. You can return to the survey at a later time in a number of ways.
