How do I access my course evaluation forms in Blue?

You will receive an email at your school email address from Tufts Course Evaluations ([email protected]) inviting you to complete the evaluation. You can click the link in the email to access your forms. If you do not receive the email, please check your spam folder.

You can also access Blue via the 'Course Evaluations' link in the left side navigation of any Canvas course. Alternatively, you can access your forms via your Blue home page at For AS&E, there will also be a Canvas announcement with a link to Blue.

Students must log into Blue using their Tufts credentials in order to access their forms. Students cannot access evaluation forms outside of the Blue system.

Note that different programs manage their course evaluations independently. For example, ExCollege course evaluation notifications are delivered in a separate email from the AS&E notifications.

The Blue course evaluation system is fed by SIS. If you receive an invitation to a course that you are not taking, please contact the registrar to have your data corrected in that system. Once the update is made in SIS, the data will flow overnight to Blue, and you will automatically be removed from the course evaluation.

Log in to Blue with your Tufts University username and password to view your dashboard. During login you may be asked to select a user group. Please choose the user group that is indicated in your email notification.

You must respond to all required questions (marked with a red asterisk) in order to submit the form. If a ratings question is not relevant to your experience, you may select the 'No Answer' option. If a comment box does not appear large enough to fit your long and detailed response, you may keep typing to trigger the box to expand itself, or drag the corner to expand the box.

If you are nearing the deadline, or plan to take time composing your comments, click "Save" to save your responses while you are completing the evaluation. The progress bar shows how much of the evaluation you have completed so far. When you have finished the evaluation, click "Submit". If you have not completed every mandatory question, the form will not submit: Why can't I submit my course evaluation form in Blue?

After submitting, you can view the list of all of your evaluations. From here you can select and complete any remaining course evaluations.

If you have a lot of forms and are having difficulty sorting through them, you can easily find the open forms by using the search function on your Blue dash at Type 'open' into the search field, and choose 'Status' from the drop down list.
