FCQ Optional Question Catalog (through summer 2017 only)
This catalog lists over 1200 items that have been used as optional questions on the Faculty Course Questionnaire (FCQ) in the last few years. Each item is listed with a number--this is the number to be recorded on the Optional Question Request Form (or Group Optional Request Form, for departments) to have that item printed on a set of FCQ forms.
You can also search optional questions for particular text strings.
You may request optional questions for your courses each fall and spring semester using the online form at (http://fcq.colorado.edu/Opts/optsform.htm) or the paper Individual Optional Request Form, available from your department FCQ coordinator. Both forms allow you to create or write your own optional questions if you don't find a suitable question below.
Please note that Group Optional Questions may be printed on your forms at the request of your Department, College, or Campus. If you choose questions, however, yours will be printed before any Group Optional Question (this reminder is just to avoid duplication.)
