These 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 works collaboratively with individual instructors to develop the survey, and then administers it online and finally produces a report with the results. Several faculty members have found one-on-one consultations pre and post-assessment to be very valuable in both designing the assessments, as well as acting upon the resulting feedback. Every semester CLT announces when mid-semester assessment would be conducted, and sends the link of the request form to all faculty. Please make sure you place your request through the announced link. View the sample survey report here.
Small Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGID)
SGID is a formative assessment tool to help faculty members get feedback from their students. CLT staff members would initially meet with instructors for a brief discussion before meeting with students for 30 to 40 minutes in class. CLT then produces a report with the written and oral feedback collected from students and meets the instructor to discuss suggestions and recommendations. It is less formal than traditional educational research but more systematic and data-based than teacher reflection. Read more about how an SGID is conducted.
All CLT assessments are confidential and are only shared with the course instructor.
