Read the steps below for instructions, or check out this quick video:
Step 1: Creating your Teacher short-list
Start typing your teacher’s name and carefully select the name of your teacher, then click ‘Save’. This teacher will now be available when you request Teacher Evaluations for each school.
If you’d like your counselor to submit a teacher evaluation for any of your schools, you’ll need to add them to your Invited Teachers list in addition to the assigned counselor list.
Step 2: Assigning teachers to schools
Before you start sending requests to teachers, make sure you understand the teacher evaluation requirements for each school. Different schools will have different requirements, and some will limit the number of optional teacher evaluations you can submit, so you’ll want to choose wisely. You can review the school’s teacher evaluation requirements by expanding the school in your application list or by finding this information in your Common App Account.
You can confirm they've been invited in the Common App info center at the top of the page in the Selected Teachers section. You'll see each teacher that was added to the selected list, and you can see the number of schools to which they've been assigned. If you click on the number of schools, you will see the list of schools. In the example below, the teacher email@example.com was assigned to 1 school, the University of Miami.
You’ll also be able to review the status of their evaluation in both MajorClarity, and via your Common App account. Once you submit your application to the school, the teacher’s submitted teacher evaluation will be sent to the school as well.
Is your teacher from a different school district / not available in MajorClarity?
Log into Common App
Select one of your colleges
Choose the Recommenders and FERPA tab
Scroll down to the Teacher Evaluation section and click the link to download the Teacher Evaluation PDF form
Provide the PDF to your teacher and instructions on the destination(s) -- we suggest providing the list of schools and mailing addresses/email addresses. Your teacher should ideally complete this form once, and send a copy to each college that you've specified.
Note: Manually submitted Common App forms will not have their status available in your Common App portal. Please verify receipt directly with the college.
