AEFIS - Eval Results - Student Course Evaluation Metric Trend Analysis Report (Admin) [UW-Madison]

The "Student Course Evaluation Metric Trend Analysis" is one of several reports used to compile and analyze students responses to course evaluations. This document explains how to navigate the report options, and how to run and read the resulting report.

AEFIS offers several reports to help compile and organize the responses from course evaluations. For general information about these reports, visit AEFIS - Eval Results - Reports Homepage (Admin) [UW-Madison]

Report Parameters

Every AEFIS Course Evaluation report has a panel of report parameters similar to the one shown below. The key parameters, and their behavior are outlined here:

report options


  • Select the semester to be reported.
  • You can select multiple semesters.


  • Options defined by your AEFIS user account.


  • Options defined by your AEFIS user account.


  • This field may be left blank to show all courses in the report.
  • It may appear empty, but begin typing the course name to trigger the filter.
  • Select from courses that were available during that semester.
  • You can select multiple courses or leave blank for all courses.


  • This field may be left blank to show all instructors in the report.
  • It field may appear empty, but begin typing the instructor's name to trigger the filter.

Student Course Evaluation

  • You must select a survey, even if only one survey is listed.

Completed Surveys Only

  • If any surveys are in Pending Results, the data will only be included if unchecked. However, most reports are created after the semester is done and all surveys are complete so leaving it checked is fine. 

Aggregate Level

  • Two options: Course or Course Section
  • AEFIS will compile responses at either level.

Reset Parameters

  • Resets all parameters back to default values (useful when you have made several attempts).
  • Since multiple fields allow you to select multiple items, "resetting" parameters quickly erases all selected options.

Run Report

  • This may take several seconds or minutes to complete, depending on quantity of data.
  • The page will load with a new view. (See Report Details below.)

Report Details

This report is broken out into course sections. The metrics are displayed per section, along with the response rate.
