Online Course Evaluation Information

Student Evaluation Access Guide

This is an opportunity to evaluate your courses. The college uses this information to evaluate the instructors and their courses and provides instructors with an opportunity to improve their courses.
Courses are evaluated in different groups called “projects”; you may have courses in one or more of these projects. The projects can have different evaluation open and close dates; therefore, you may receive more than one email notice.
There are three ways to access your course evaluations:

  • Email—Your Bellevue College email. How to set-up a BC email address
  • Canvas course pop-up window
  • Canvas course navigation menu


You will receive an email notification in your Bellevue College student email, two days prior to the opening of the evaluations to let you know evaluations are coming. You receive an email the morning the evaluation open, with a link to login.

Step 1

Select the login link in the email and it will take you directly to your EvaluationKit Dashboard. See image below.

Step 4

If you start filling out an evaluation and need to stop for some reason, you can save your results by clicking on the “Come Back Later” button at the bottom of the evaluation. You have the ability to save it twice. The next time you start the survey you will need to complete it. See image below.

Canvas Course Pop-Up Window

When you login to your Canvas course and you have NOT completed the evaluation for that course, or you are logging into the course for the first time, you will see the following pop-up message:

If you select “Go To Survey” you go directly to the course evaluation. You can then go to “Step 2” above and continue through “Step 6”
If you decide to “Do It Later”, you will go to your course site. Please note that the “Do IT Later” option will disappear the weekend prior to final exams. You will then need to complete the evaluation before continuing on to your course.

Canvas Course Navigation Menu

There is also an evaluation link in your Canvas course site. It is located in the left side navigation menu, titled “Student Evaluations”. This link will disappear after you complete your evaluations. See image below.

Certificate of Completion

Once you have completed an evaluation, you will receive a “Certificate of Completion”. The certificate is sent to your Bellevue College email.** If your instructor offers extra credits if you complete the evaluation, you can use this certificate as proof of completion. Please check with your instructor for directions on how to submit this certificate. Your instructor’s name is listed on the certificate. See image below.
