Sample Inputs

Sample survey

SDSU/ITS midÔÇÉcourse evaluation


Mid-semester surveys solicit voluntary student responses during the half-way point of a course. Insights gathered will help both the instructor and course meet the needs and expectations of the students.

How do I implement it?

A convenient and effective way to implement this tool is to use a web-based survey program such as SurveyMonkey. A sample mid-semester survey conducted in Spring 2007 on the course Psychology 101 in SDSU is available here for your reference.
