OMET offers a flexible option for gathering student feedback early in the term but there may be instances where other options are better suited for the course or faculty member, Here are some tips for writing good survey questions and alternate options for administering a midterm survey.
Qualtrics – Qualtrics can be used to administer surveys, collect and store data, and analyze results. Qualtrics includes powerful survey flow options to customize your survey. Surveys can be set up to be anonymous. The University of Pittsburgh has a site license for the Qualtrics Survey Service.
Top Hat is a powerful class polling and student engagement tool. Multiple surveys can be deployed at various points in the term and results collected in real time. Most survey questions can be created as anonymous. To get started, go to their registration page to create an account. No download or integration with an LMS is required.
Canvas offers the ability to survey students using the Quiz tool. This is similar to how it’s handled in Blackboard. The anonymous feature can be turned off/on once surveys are deployed.
More information can be found at the Canvas support page for creating course surveys in their environment.
