Writing Midterm Evaluations on TheHub
Entering information about students for whom you have concerns at midterm is important to help CASA identify those who may need assistance to ensure satisfactory academic progress. Like the old version of TheHub, you now have two methods of recording midterm evaluations: a new quick (summary) method to quickly enter the majority of students or the original student-by-student basis to record comments for each. You can use either (or both!) methods, the choice is yours. Please note that Midterm Evaluations are required for all students in their first year at Hampshire (both newly admitted and transfers who entered in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014). You can easily identify which students require an evaluation by looking for the icon. Midterm evaluations for other students is voluntary.
When you get to TheHub, select any course from Spring 2014 for which you wish to complete midterm evaluations. By default, the class roster is displayed. Take note of the Action: selector in the upper-right corner.
From your class roster on TheHub, use the “Action” selector in the upper right corner and choose “Midterm summary evaluations” to display the Summary/Quick entry form.
Your roster will now display a “Concerns at Midterm?” column along with columns of Yes/No for each student. For students for whom you have no concerns simply click “No”. This will record your response with a single click and no confirmation is needed. Note that this does not allow you to enter positive comments for these students either. If you want to include comments for a student for whom you have no concerns, please use the Student-By-Student entry below.
For those students whom you do have concerns at midterm, click “Yes”. This will open a new dialog where you are required to enter comments explaining your concerns. Please note that these comments are shared with both CASA and the student.
Student by Student Entry
If you prefer to enter midterm evaluations on a student by student basis, from your class roster on TheHub, use the “Action” selector in the upper right corner and choose “Access all evaluations” to display the Evaluation page.
Under the “Midterm Eval” column, click “Write” to record your midterm evaluation for each student in the class.
This will open a new dialog where you can indicate if you have concerns. As always, you are required to enter comments if you do have concerns. Please note that these comments are shared with both CASA and the student.
