Find resources to guide your approach to classroom approaches

What is Mid-Term Course Feedback?

Mid-term feedback lets faculty and instructors check on how various aspects of a course are facilitating learning. By surveying students, instructors and students can gain practical insights about what is working as well as recommendations for improving learning and teaching.

Gather feedback to:

  • make sure your intentions are have their intended impact 
  • check students' shifting levels of stress and engagement as the term continues
  • support and enhance student learning and engagement in the course
  • improve your teaching
  • demonstrate your care and commitment to students' success
  • avoid surprises in your end-of-semester course evaluations



Distribute a version of the form below and collect anonymous responses. Share a summary of students' responses and your plans within one week.
