In the coming year, WSU will retire and replace the Skylight Survey System, an in-house software used for course evaluations and other WSU surveys. Skylight is currently operated and supported by the Office of Assessment of Teaching and Learning, which will decommission Skylight and transition to a commercial course evaluation system. The intention of the transition to a new course evaluation system is to help the WSU community reach our goals related to teaching, research and outreach. Specifically, we expect the new systems to enhance the ability of faculty, staff, and administration to gather evidence they need to guide decisions about instruction, curriculum, programs, and services, and to support survey needs connected to research and evaluation.
For additional information, please see the December 2013 message from the Office of the Provost.
