What’s the difference between a signed and unsigned comment?


Unsigned comments remain anonymous and are viewable only by the instructor.  A signed comment attaches your name to the comment, so it is no longer anonymous (the instructor can associate you with the comment). When you sign a comment it becomes viewable by the department head and his or her designee, such as approved department level administrative assistant who assembles reports for review by the department chair and also commonly places the evaluations (with the signed comment) into an instructor’s personnel file.
