The college online course evaluation is using a single sign-on technology via our Blackboard system. The simple steps are outlined below. If you have any questions or concerns about the course evaluation process, please contact the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA) at or call 301-696-3559. For any technical problems with Blackboard, please contact the IT Help Desk at or call 301-696-3622.

Step 1: Login to Blackboard (Hood email account and password)

For those who are unfamiliar with the Blackboard login information, assistance may be provided by emailing   

Step 2: Click on the "Course Evaluation" button in your Blackboard course site and you will be automatically logged into the SmartEvals system.

Step 3: Click the button which reads “Evaluate” and respond to each question until you reach the end of the page and then hit “Submit” to compete your evaluation.

If you are enrolled in more than one course, a table will show up with all the courses that you need to evaluate.

Note: You will receive several reminders to complete your evaluations. To stop receiving the reminders, you must complete all your course evaluations.
