Accessing Reports

  • Automated reports are sent to instructors via email for every course once grades have been submitted for full term courses.
    • This includes courses that run for less than 15 weeks.
  • An email will be sent from Blue with a link to access your individual reports for courses that have received at least 5 responses to the evaluation.
  • You can download a PDF or CSV copy of your reports for archival purposes.  
    1. Select the link in the email to access your report.
    2. In the top left of your report you will see the option to download either a PDF or CSV copy.
    3. Reports can also be obtained by visiting Ohio.bluera.com/ohio/. Please note however, this link can only used once you have received the email notification that your reports are ready.
