    • At this point in the semester, your instructor would like to know:
    1. What is helping you to learn in this class?
    2. What is making learning difficult?
    3. What changes could be made to help you learn?
    4. At this point in the semester, what do you still find confusing or unclear?
    5. What steps could you take to improve your own learning in this course?
  • Instructors will have the option to add custom questions.
  • Surveys will be administered online to students
  • Surveys will be open to students for one week
