Mid-Semester Course Evaluation

The Mid-Semester Course Evaluation survey is designed to collect detailed feedback about how well the course is working. It's an opportunity for faculty to make adjustments during the semester if time allows and, of course, to revise the course for future offerings. It may be offered once at mid-semester (or in some cases more frequently) and, if course correction is implemented, repeated for comparison at semester end.

The Student Feedback survey is designed to collect "fast" feedback and can be used weekly, after each teaching module or unit, or on another cycle deemed appropriate by the instructor.


In Class:

To administer either or both of these surveys during class, you can ask any person to assist you by taking a few minutes of class time while you are out of the room to provide and collect the surveys.  Or, you may ask a member of CLT staff to come to your class (see the link at the bottom of this section).
