Mid-course feedback enables instructors to fine-tune a course that is already in progress. Gathering this type of feedback sends a message to students that you care about their success in the course.
To get honest feedback from students, make the survey anonymous.
To assist you, the Faculty Innovation Center has created a global question bank that consists of mid-course related questions. You can use all, some, or none of the questions in this question bank.
