We are using the CourseEval system from Academic Management Systems. We piloted in the late fall of 2006 and by fall 2007, received approval from the faculty to provide the online method as an option for course evaluations. During the past two+ years we have seen a steady increase in faculty participation, passing the 50% of all course sections in the fall of 2008. Student participation rates are running about 72%.
Representatives from the University of Minnesota system presented findings at the EDUCAUSE 2006 Annual meeting which addressed the issues surrounding participation rates and how rates less than 100% might (or might not) impact a faculty or course rating. Their results demonstrated no significant difference between paper-based near 100% participation and the online method with participation as low as 60%. The UMinn presentation is available on the EDUCAUSE web site.

Athabasca University needs to move its existing paper based course evaluation process online. I was wondering what online systems others are using and how integrated they are to the core systems. In addition how successful are they in terms of response rates and reporting.
Just for background our Student Information System is Banner and our Learning Management System is Moodle.
