BEST provides a variety of services available for faculty, students, and administrators, including the Online Course Questionnaire (OCQ), Testing, Scanning, and assistance in transitioning from paper to electronic evaluations.
Online Course Questionnaire
IU Bloomington's Online Course Questionnaire was developed to centralize and standardize the course evaluation process. The Online Course Questionnaire (OCQ) consists of 11 campus-wide questions that students are asked to answer about each class they take. Each department and instructor may ask additional questions to get the most out of the OCQ. Faculty members receive a report that summarizes the students’ feedback for each class taught. Results are distributed only after grades have been submitted.
Bloomington Evaluation Services and Testing ended its paper exam scoring service on May 6, 2022. For more information on scanning options beyond Spring 2022, please see "About Akindi at IU".
Bloomington Evaluation Services and Testing (BEST) offers the opportunity for faculty and academic units to migrate their paper midterm evaluations to the online system that hosts Online Course Questionnaires (OCQ).
