Add Mid-Semester Feedback

Here's how to add the mid-semester feedback form to your course:

  2. Turn editing on
  3. In the section where you'd like the feedback form to appear, click “Add an Activity or Resource”
  4. In the popup menu, click on "Feedback" (Under "Activities")
  5. Enter a name for your feedback activity.
    • Optional: If you like, you can include an explanatory note to students in the "Description" box.  Sample language from the TLI office is included below.
    • Optional: If you like, you can also include a message for students to read after they have submitted the feedback form. Scroll down and enter it under "After Submission" in the "Completion Message" box.
  6. Click "Save and Display."
  7. Go to the “Templates” tab.
  8. Under "Use a Template" choose “mid-semester feedback template” from the drop-down list.

  2. Click on "Edit" to the right of the Feedback activity.
  3. Choose "Edit Settings" from the list.
  4. Under "Availability", tick the box next to the from date, the to date, or both.

  6. Click "Save and return to course".

Sample Language for Description

This language is just a sample - please customize the wording to best fit your communication style and your students.

Thank you for taking the time to give me feedback on our work together this semester so far. Your responses will give me a sense of your experience and help me think about the best ways to support your learning during the second half of the semester. Your responses will remain confidential and will not be associated with your name.

Add your own questions

  1. Click on the feedback form
  2. Go to the "Edit Questions" tab
  3. Choose a question type from the "Add question" dropdown.
  4. Enter your question, and fill out the other options as necessary.
    • By default, your new question will be included at the end of the feedback survey. You can change the order using the "Position" option.
  5. Click "Save question".
