Midcourse Feedback Form

Gathering student feedback midway through a course enables an instructor to make adjustments before a class is over, so that student learning is optimized. Soliciting such feedback also sends a signal to students about instructor responsiveness and collaboration in the learning process. This feedback is entirely formative in nature—no one sees it but the instructor and it does not factor into any final evaluation. There are several ways instructors can gain such feedback from students:

  • Distributing an anonymous feedback form in class or online to students midway through the term (see link below to sample form that you can adapt for your own use)
  • Taking 10 minutes at the end of a class period to distribute index cards and collect feedback from students (example: “Any suggestions you have for how to make this course even better”)
  • Creating an anonymous online survey through the Sakai Tests and Quizzes tool, if you are comfortable with Sakai
  • Mid-Course Feedback Form (MS Word)
