Pre and Post Test Semester Survey

  • Instructor: Dr. Tadayuki (Tad) Hara, Rosen College of Hospitality, UCF
  • Course Title: HFT4732 - 0V61 Spring 2011 Tourism Impact Analysis

A sample report of the semester end survey File:SemesterEndSurvey HFT4732V-mode-2011SP.pdf

This semester, I used the anonymous survey twice in my course (V-mode) and you can get fairly good response rates (27/33 = 81%) to get a feel of how the course has been perceived up to that point. You can also add short comments portion, to which students in distant learning setting would surprisingly type up something to express their opinion. I guess anonymous setting helps. When negative comments are found, we can see it as a sign that it (anonymous survey setting) is working.

Semester Course Evaluation

  • Instructor: Dr. Baiyun Chen, CDL, UCF
  • Course Title: EME6062 - Research in Instructional Technology

A sample course evaluation questionnaire File:CourseEvaleme6062.pdf

I used anonymous survey in Webcourses to collect feedbacks and suggestions from students at the end of the semester. Students received bonus points to fill out this survey. So far, 40 out of 43 completed the survey and gave me valuable suggestions for future course revisions. They also appreciated the gesture of asking for their feedbacks and making changes.

Weekly Formative Course Evaluation

  • Instructor: Dr. Brenda Thompson, College of Education, UCF
  • Course Title: EDH6305 Teaching and Learning in the Community College

A sample of the course evaluation survey File:ModuleEval.pdf

Weekly Formative Course Evaluation

  • Instructor: Dr. Kelvin Thompson, College of Education and Human Performance, UCF
  • Course Title: EME5050 Fundamentals of Technology for Educators
    • Weekly questionnaire implemented using Google Forms to reinforce to students true anonymity of responses.
    • Consistent questionnaire items from week to week based upon areas of instructor concern (e.g., social presence, students accessing weekly podcast, etc.).
    • First item on questionnaire (modified version of "muddiest point") changes weekly for variety.
