Click on a question to view the answer:

Where do I go to take an SRI survey?

You will receive an email reminder for each class you are attending each week the survey is open. There will be a link to the survey in the email. You can also go to UVLink (see this screenshot) to take any open surveys.

I have a class with multiple instructors, do I complete a survey for each of them?

Yes. You should receive a survey link in an e-mail for each instructor assigned to your class. If you choose to submit the survey via UVLink, you will see a link for each instructor in the "Student Rating of Instruction" box in the Attending Class page under the Student Tab.

Can my teacher identify me or my results?

This survey protects your identity. No personal information is stored in the SRI system. Your responses cannot be linked to you personally, or your student records. The survey results are given to the teacher in summary form after grades are submitted. You should, however, take care not to include any information in your written comments that may identify you.

I would rather not take the survey, can I opt out?

If you would rather not take the survey, you may opt out without any penalty. However, we strongly encourage you to take this opportunity to evaluate the quality of instruction at UVU. Your instructors use the survey results to improve the quality of teaching for future students. You may opt out by clicking on the Submit Survey button without filling in the survey information. Caution, you will not be able to go back and respond to the survey later!

How do I print a confirmation receipt to give my instructor?

You will have the opportunity to print your confirmation receipt after you have submitted your survey. You can also click on the link in your email to return to the survey and print the receipt from there. Additionally you can click on the survey link from the "Student Rating of Instruction" section in the Attending Class page under the Student Tab. After the surveys close, you will not be able to access them again.

How long do I have to complete the surveys?

Most surveys are open for a total of 20 days, 14 days before the end of the course and 6 days after. The length of time that the survey is open depends on the length of your class. See the SRI Key Dates schedule for exact dates for each part of term.

Can I re-do or edit my surveys?

We are sorry, but because the system provides you complete anonymity, we cannot identify which survey to “re-set” for you.  If you would like to provide feedback to your instructor directly you may do so. Or you may contact the department chair who could present your feedback anonymously to the faculty member. We are sure your instructors would appreciate either option.

I did not receive any SRI emails, what's wrong?

SRI emails are sent to your UVLink account. The SRI emails will not be sent to your personal email and you may miss them if you have not linked your UVLink email to your personal email. If you have linked your UVLink email to your personal email, the SRI email may have been sent to your SPAM folder. Additionally, the email will return to us labeled "undeliverable" if your UVLink email inbox is full. If you are still not receiving your SRI emails after doing these things, send an email to with an explanation of your problem.

Who do I contact for more information about evaluations?

Concerns and questions regarding evaluations should be sent to You may also contact the Associate VP of Academic Affairs / Administration, Kathren Brown.

If I can't take the survey or it doesn't work right, who do I contact regarding technical problems?
