Student Surveys

An early course evaluation allows you to get feedback from students so you can decide on possible adjustments while your course is still in progress.

A survey is a relatively quick and easy way to elicit this feedback. While your course is in progress, a survey is an efficient way to gather rich information from your students on how your course supports their learning. The process is voluntary and confidential and student responses are anonymous. Give students 10-15 minutes to complete the evaluation during class.

An Eberly colleague can help you at any step in this process; for example, adapting survey questions to meet your needs, choosing the right time to administer the survey, analyzing and interpreting the results, and debriefing with students.
