Given that AUC has now moved to online instruction, CLT has sent out emails to all faculty who had requested Mid-Semester Assessments (MSA) to indicate whether they're still interested to go forward with their requests. Faculty who requested SGIDs are offered to have online surveys instead. Note that the MSA closure date is April 9, 2020. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mid-Semester Assessment (MSA) is a confidential, non-evaluative form of assessment, used to gather student feedback on their learning experience. Mid-Semester Assessment includes Online Surveys and Small Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGID).
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, and then administers it online and finally produces a report with the results. Several faculty members find pre and post assessment consultations with CLT to be valuable in both designing the assessments, as well as 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 whenever appropriate. View a sample survey report here.
Small-Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGID)
Small-Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGID) 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 request, two CLT staff members facilitate a discussion with students about their learning experience. CLT shares a summary report of student feedback along with suggested recommendations (where appropriate) with the instructor. Know more about how SGIDs are conducted.
