Students’ feedback on teaching activities significantly contributes to the enhancement of the quality of teaching and learning. Conventionally students evaluate teaching activities through paper based systems, where they fill out and return paper copies of teaching or course evaluation In the last decades, institutions are moving student evaluation system online. Despite increasing growth in the use of online student evaluation systems, critiques argue that digitalizing the process of teaching evaluation contributes to reduced response rates We carried out a systematic review of the literature and identified four key factors that are likely to influence response rates in online student evaluation of teaching. These include survey development, survey delivery, survey return and survey completion. We argue that understanding and addressing these factors is critical for improving online response rates. Further, based on this review we are working on developing a strategy for supporting our institution in the deployment of online student evaluation system and developing a plan for studying its efficacy.
