SPOTs (Student Perception of Teaching forms) are to be completed online. Faculty no longer provide paper SPOTs in class at the end of the semester. Please remember to complete the SPOTs for the classes in which you are enrolled. In order to complete the SPOT, please go to Https://spot.fau.edu. Please note that some faculty may ask you to complete the SPOT in class using your smartphone or tablet.
Please keep in mind that SPOTs are an extremely effective tool to evaluate the quality of instruction. Departments, schools, and colleges use individual instructor data and comments in annual evaluations, as well as for tenure and promotion. SPOT results are presented to faculty in summary form after the end of the semester. Individual SPOT responses are completely anonymous and remain anonymous. The faculty has no way of linking a SPOT to a particular student.

SPOT is an anonymous and effective tool given at the end of each semester to help evaluate the quality of instruction and improve the university’s education standards.
The Fall 2018 SPOT Results and Comments are currently being processed and will be sent by e-mail directly to faculty, deans, and chairs when they are ready. (We project that they will be completed in mid-January 2019.)
SPOT (Student Perception of Teaching) for Early Spring 2019 will be available online beginning Saturday, December 29 at 12:01 a.m. The deadline for completion is Friday, January 4, at 11:59 p.m. (If you are taking a Fast Track class, your SPOT will be close on the last day of your class. Your professor will send you the opening date.)
