(Logan-AP) -- Utah State University's faculty wants their student evaluations removed from the school's official Web site.

Members of the U-S-U Faculty Senate overwhelmingly approved a recommendation to immediately suspend public access to the information.

The recommendation to remove the evaluations will be reviewed by the appropriate administrative body, and a Faculty Senate committee will continue to study the issue.

At the end of each semester, students are asked to fill out anonymous surveys to rate the effectiveness of the course, materials and professor. For several years, the results have been posted on the Internet, and students say this helps them determine which professors and courses to select.
