Available Online April 3!
Effective this semester, all SPOTs (Student Perception of Teaching forms) will be completed online. Faculty will no longer provide paper SPOTs in class at the end of the semester. In the past, the Office of Testing and Evaluation printed over 210,000 paper SPOTs every academic year, so the shift to online evaluations will have a major environmental impact.
Please keep in mind that SPOTs are an extremely effective tool to evaluate the quality of instruction. Departments, schools, and colleges use individual instructor data and comments in annual evaluations, as well as for tenure and promotion. SPOT results are presented to faculty in summary form after the end of the semester. Individual SPOT responses are completely anonymous and remain anonymous. Faculty have no way of linking a SPOT to a particular student.

Log on to MyFAU and click on the "SPOT" tab at the top of the page

If you have any questions about the process, please contact the Office of Testing and Evaluation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
