Early Semester Surveys

*Note: Because it is past the midterm, we are no longer accepting requests for Early Semester Surveys for Fall 2020. Please contact Billie Franchini at bfranchini@albany.edu with any questions about this service.

ITLAL’s early semester feedback service, which is available until the midterm of each semester, is designed to help instructors find out how students are responding to an ongoing course, with the idea of making adjustments in response to student concerns. All survey data are confidential.

How the Service Works

After an instructor submits a request, we create an electronic survey and send an anonymous link that you can share with your students. After the survey has closed, we download the data and send you a report by email within 48 hours. ITLAL consultants are available to review the results with instructors upon request.

Sample Surveys

We provide several different survey options to help you receive the most relevant and useful data for your teaching situation. Surveys have been adjusted to reflect the variety of teaching modalities in the 2020-21 academic year. Click on preview to see the questions that will be included on each type of survey.
