Winter Student Experience Surveys are available from 8:00am March 6 through 6:00 a.m. on March 18. Instructors can add their own questions up until the survey opens. Surveys cannot be submitted or reopened after they close on March 18. Winter survey reports will release to instructors at noon on March 26.
Students have distinctive, valuable insights to offer about the teaching and learning experience. The Student Experience Survey offers an opportunity for formative and summative feedback that we hope will be even more valuable to instructors than previous student course "evaluations."
The surveys ask students about specific teaching elements drawn from research on the teaching practices that are significant to student learning. These teaching practices are aligned with the UO definition of teaching quality.
University Communications also encourages students to submit their feedback, but here are tips to drive quality submissions:
► NEW! Add your own questions to the survey
► Emphasize to students that their feedback matters to you
► Turn on Canvas integration to add a survey link to the course site
► Allow class time for survey submission using this instructional slide
► Send custom reminder emails to students
► Offer a nominal amount of extra credit to the entire class if the majority of students complete the survey
Reports from the survey are available to instructors after grades have been submitted. TEP welcomes meeting with faculty and GEs who wish to debrief survey feedback and think together about how they might like to apply select feedback to the course. Individual instructors might want to contextualize results by addressing them in personal statements and in the new Instructor Reflection survey.
