The adoption of electronic course evaluations has resulted in a decrease in completed evaluations at colleges and universities. Gainsharing is used in hospitals to provide an incentive to meet organizational goals. The author describes gainsharing and its use to provide a grade incentive for nursing students to submit electronic end-of-course evaluations. The effect of the incentive on student grades is also examined.
