make online evaluations a part of the new structure
Students now fill out course and professor evaluations by hand during valuable class time.
Changing the format to be web-based would reduce the amount of time students spent filling them out and walking them to Old Chapel.
It would also save piles of paper.
Lastly and perhaps most importantly, it would allow the evaluations to truly remain anonymous since professors wouldn't be able to recognize students by their handwriting.
There actually isn't a single down side to it, now that I think about it.

Perhaps you need to fill out an eval online before you can get your grades.

Does middkid.com's public eval (http://www.middkid.com/static/middkid/evalindex.php) service work well enough for students? Would Middlebury ever consider taking over such a service?
