CLT offers tool for faculty to collect student feedback via mid-semester course evaluation

For faculty members who want to perform a mid-semester course evaluation, Old Dominion University's Center for Learning Technologies (CLT) is making one available at http://clt.odu.edu. Faculty should look in the Highlights section, under Mid-Semester Course Evaluation, to link the survey to their Blackboard site. Two surveys are available.

The Mid-Semester Course Evaluation survey is designed to collect detailed feedback about how well the course is working. It's an opportunity for faculty to make adjustments during the semester if time allows and to revise the course for future offerings. It may be offered once at mid-semester (or in some cases more frequently) and, if course correction is implemented, repeated for comparison at the end of the semester.

The Student Feedback survey is designed to collect "fast" feedback and can be used weekly, after each teaching module or unit, or on another cycle deemed appropriate by the instructor. To administer either or both of these surveys in Blackboard, faculty members should download the package file, import it into their course site and deploy the survey(s) in a content area of their choice.

By using Blackboard to administer either or both of these surveys, faculty will be able to keep the surveys anonymous and view the collective results quickly and easily. To import one or both of these tools into a Blackboard course site(s), follow the steps provided in the tutorial from the CLT Web site: http://clt.odu.edu.

Faculty members who are not using Blackboard can download and print the Word version. Comments or suggestions about this tool may be directed to CLT by e-mail or phone: clt@odu.edu or 683-3172.
