Building a Mid-Term Evaluation Tool

Stemming from a demand in consultations relating to the collection and use of student-generated feedback, the Teaching and Learning Support Service (TLSS) Centre for Innovative Pedagogies and Digital Learning (CIPDL) has put together a Mid-Term Evaluation resource to guide the development of effective feedback tools.

Before using it, check out the Guide explaining the context of the use of such a tool, it will allow you to better prepare your mid-term evaluation quickly and easily.

Start by selecting from the pool the statements that correspond to your course. Repeat for each category and submit to create a ready-made form that you can distribute to your students at a strategic time during your course.

Although you can choose any number of statements, current research recommends asking a reasonable number of questions based on the time students will be given to complete the evaluation. Otherwise, creating a form with a large pool of questions may become counterproductive to your goal. In addition, a combination of quantitative statements (with associated levels and a predetermined scale) and short answer questions, provide the best approach for obtaining relevant information about your course and the strategies being used.

Now on with the choices!
