The below PDF files reflect the instruments that were in use in Fall 2019 and prior. We will be updating this page to reflect more recent versions of the instrument as soon as we are able. In the meantime, course instructors can leverage the Question Personalization feature to see a preview of the specific questions to be asked for each of their courses. They will receive an email about this feature one week prior to evaluations opening to students.
