Supervisor Evaluation Forms

GVSU's LIFT (Laker Impressions of Faculty Teaching) is a university-wide, online system for collecting student feedback about courses and instructors. 

As of Winter 2016, all course sections (with limited exceptions) use the online LIFT surveys to collect student feedback on supervisors/faculty. Students should receive an email invitation (from "LIFT via IASystem") as soon as the LIFT survey for your course opens. The email will contain the link to the survey, which you can complete on a phone, tablet or computer. You will need to log in using your GVSU ID and password to access the survey. This prevents people from submitting feedback about courses they're not in, but information about your identity is not kept with your response data, and no one at GVSU can identify which responses were sent by which student.
