Assessing the Classroom Environment (ACE) is an evaluation system that utilizes scannable answer sheets to collect student opinions about a course/instructor and provide a standard set of summary results. Instructors may or may not be required to use ACE and should check with their department to determine their options. The ACE system is based on a bank of approximately 200 evaluative statements from which instructors can select a set of items appropriate to their courses. In addition, the ACE system allows for instructor generated items that require either a scaled response or open-ended comments. There are a number of ways an ACE evaluation can be configured and instructors should check the ACE Bulletin for details.
Any questions you might have about the use of ACE should be directed to the ACE Coordinator at 335-0357 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
