About this Tool

Online Course Questionnaire (OCQ)—sometimes called Course Questionnaire or Online Course Evaluation—is available for online course evaluations at all Indiana University campuses except IU Fort Wayne and the IU School of Medicine. You and your students can access Course Questionnaire within Canvas.

Most of the items in the questionnaire are standardized, but you may add up to three qualitative and three quantitative customized questions. During the evaluation period, you can monitor response rates for your classes. After the term is over, you can view reports summarizing the evaluation results.

  • Customize your evaluations. You may ask additional questions to get the most out of the OCQ.
  • Monitor response rates. You can view your response rates and promote the evaluations accordingly.
