Mid-Course Feedback

“When teachers get rating results after the course has concluded, the students who gave the feedback don’t see any follow-up. In some cases, they see teachers who they (and many other students) have evaluated poorly continue to teach as they always have. These students then conclude that the feedback they provided wasn’t taken seriously by the teacher or the institution. When a teacher talks about evaluation results with students, it’s a visible demonstration their feedback has value and that can motivate students to offer more specific feedback.”
