Teaching Evaluation Software Blue
UNH has transitioned to a new teaching evaluation software, Blue from Explorance, beginning with the end of term Spring evaluations. Blue will be used for all Spring 2017 full-term Manchester and Durham teaching evaluations, as well as Half Term II, E-Term IV, and Paul Term IV.
Spring 2017 Law School teaching evaluations and Durham/Manchester courses from earlier Spring sections (Half Term I, E-Term III, etc) were run in the old evaluation software, Campus Labs. For information on accessing these results and past semester results, review the section below called Previous Vendor.
