A dear friend of mine from grad school recently told me she created a survey for one of her college classes through surveymonkey.com. I was very intrigued by this idea, so I decided to create one as well. It's nothing fancy, but it was super easy to make. We do end-of-the-semester evals, but I don't see those until final grades have been submitted. So, the students really don't have a chance to give their thoughts on how they'd like to see the course changed in a way that would directly affect them.
So far I haven't gotten too many bites, but I'm hoping by the end of Spring Break I'll have a few solid ideas I can work with. I'll post them if they're useful.
Here's what my survey looks like (click to enlarge). I stole the majority of the wording from my friend, who's ridiculously good at coming up with cool ideas to interact with her students.
