Online Feedback

Get teaching feedback mid-term

VPTL has two services to help you get feedback from students mid-way through the quarter so that you can make quick adjustments and optimize your students’ learning experience.

Online Survey with link

Request a survey to send to your students during weeks 4-6 of the quarter, starting from a template we provide. We'll activate it and give you the link to share with your students. You can request multiple surveys, so this option can work for courses with several instructors or TAs.

After it's closed, we'll send you a confidential report, curated to keep out inappropriate comments. We can connect you with a consultant in your disciplinary area who can help you interpret your results and put insights into action

Canvas survey

Import the VPTL mid-term feedback survey from Canvas Commons, add custom questions and your name, and then publish it in Canvas for students to complete anonymously. This works best for courses with one instructor or TA who’d like quick and easy feedback from students.
You can download the results directly to a comma-separated values (.csv) file for your own analysis, and we can also connect you to a VPTL consultant who can help you review results and translate insights into action.
