Early Semester Surveys

*Note: Because it is past the midterm, we are no longer accepting requests for Early Semester Surveys for Fall 2021. If you would like to request surveys for an 8W2 course or have any questions about this service, please contact Billie Franchini at bfranchini@albany.edu.

ITLAL’s early semester survey service, which is available until the midterm of each semester, is designed to help instructors learn about students’ experience in an ongoing course and make adjustments in response to student concerns. All survey data are confidential, and ITLAL consultants are available to review the results with instructors upon request.

How the Service Works

For the 2021-22 academic year, instructors have the option of administering surveys on paper or electronically for all courses. For paper surveys, we will create and print blank survey forms and make those available for you to pick up in our office or send them to you by campus mail. After students have completed the surveys, return them to our office. We will process the data and email you a report within one week. For electronic surveys, we will create the survey and send an anonymous link to share with students. After the survey has closed, we will download the data and email you a report within two business days.
