Mid-Semester Assessments

Last updated on مارس 24, 2021

Due to AUC continuing with online instruction, CLT will mainly be offering online surveys that can be customized upon request. As an alternative to Small Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGIDs), CLT will offer synchronous classroom feedback sessions with students. Priority will be given to faculty who have not received the SGID or the Synchronous Classroom Feedback Session service before or have not used it over the past two years. Mid-Semester Assessment (MSA) is a confidential, non-evaluative form of assessment used to gather student feedback on their learning experience. 

Assessments will run from March 17, 2021, to April 6, 2021. Faculty could request an online survey or a synchronous feedback session no later than March 20, 2021, if you have any questions, email eda@aucegypt.edu.

Surveys are tailored to help instructors get feedback from students in the middle of the semester in time for them to make adjustments for the remaining part of the semester. CLT collaborates with instructors to develop the survey, administers it online, and finally produces a report. Several faculty members find pre and post-assessment consultations with CLT to be valuable in designing the assessments and acting upon feedback received from students. Student response has been very positive to MSA; they appreciate the instructor's willingness to receive their feedback and act upon it appropriately. View a sample survey report here.

Synchronous Feedback Sessions (SFS) is a formative assessment tool in which CLT asks students about what helps them learn and their suggestions on how to improve their learning experience. Upon the instructor's request, two CLT staff members facilitate an online discussion with students about their learning experience. CLT shares a summary report of student feedback and suggested recommendations (where appropriate) with the instructor. Click here to know more about how SFS is conducted.
