New CTEC Platform

Modified: May 12, 2016

For Spring 2016, Northwestern is launching a large scale pilot of a new platform for the CTEC system (course and teacher evaluations.) In order to be included in an evaluation, Teaching Assistants must be listed on the lecture section of the class in CAESAR. TA’s are strongly encouraged to verify this in CAESAR and should check this each quarter they are acting as a TA:

Step 1

Point your browser to CAESAR and sign in using your NetID and password. Please make sure you are in the Faculty Center and not the Student Center.

Step 2

The current term should default into the Select Term field. To change the term:

  • Use the drop-down arrow to the right of the Select Term field to select the correct term.
  • Select the "Change" button. Your Teaching Schedule for the term you have selected will appear on the lower part of the page.

If you do not see the lecture section of your class listed, please contact your department directly and they can add you.

The new platform is called Blue by eXplorance. Blue is a robust tool that will provide the University with an improved user interface, more flexibility for designing surveys, and better reporting capabilities.

Highlights include:

  • Ability to access evaluations through Canvas
  • Mobile-friendly platform
  • Increased accessibility
  • More opportunities for faculty and student engagement

Pilots of the new CTEC system began in Fall 2015, with full implementation slated for Fall 2016.
