What does “assessment” mean? Simply put, the School of Undergraduate Studies wants to hear from you, the Signature Course student. Your feedback helps us learn how the course is impacting your first-year experience and how we can improve the course for future students. We will contact you during the semester to request your participation for various assessment projects:
Mid-Semester Student Survey
Around mid-semester, you will receive a link to the survey via email. We will ask you about your Signature Course experience up to the midway point in the semester. Your responses are anonymous. We’ll ask you for your instructor’s name so we can send each instructor his or her own results directly, which allows the instructor to make course improvements for the remainder of the semester. Your honest, constructive feedback can help improve the course for you, your fellow students, and the instructor.
Course Instructor Survey (CIS)
You will be asked to complete a Course Instructor Survey for your Signature Course and all your other courses. You will receive this survey either on paper or online.
