In order to get feedback more quickly, I've seen some teachers run a quick (certainly no more than 5 minutes), entirely optional, anonymous survey for students at the end of each of each class, meeting, or session. The idea is to get feedback on what is working and what isn't on a per-week basis before mid-term or end-of-term evaluations. What are good questions or prompts to use on a survey like this?
For example, I am currently planning to ask something like:
Any feedback on the BLANK? (e.g., was it rewarding, challenging, about the right about, etc.)"
Where BLANK will be the readings, lecture, and discussion for the class session. I will also ask a general question like:
"Any other feedback or things you think I should know?"
