New this fall, instructors have the option to add up to two supplementary questions from a question pool to their end of course Student Questionnaire on Courses and Teaching (SQCT).
Instructors who want to opt-in and select supplementary questions for their fall term end-of-course SQCT can do so from September 11 to September 30 at feedback.uwo.ca. Instructions on opting in and selecting supplementary questions for the end-of-course SQCTs are available at http://www.yourfeedback.uwo.ca/instructorsSQCTguide.cfm.
Students will be able to complete their end-of-course SQCT, including any supplementary questions that their instructor selected, during the fall course feedback period (November 20 â€“ December 8) at feedback.uwo.ca.
Please note that only the instructor will have access to the results of her/his supplementary SQCT questions.
Instructors whose end-of-course SQCTs are administered in the winter term (e.g., second term half courses, full year courses) will be able to opt-in and select supplementary SQCT questions in January.
The core SQCT questions are designed to be applicable university-wide and to courses of different formats. The questions in the supplementary question pool focus on different aspects of the teaching and learning experience, including assessing specific skills students may develop in a course (e.g., critical analysis of research, problem-solving skills), specific course formats (e.g., blended courses, field courses), and different course components (e.g., labs, tutorials). These questions offer the opportunity to collect specific feedback on course outcomes or components that are not explicitly addressed in the core SQCT questions.
If you want to opt-in and add supplementary questions to your end of course SQCT, you need to select at least one question from the supplementary SQCT question pool. You can select up to a maximum of 2 questions in total from the pool. The question pool contains 45 items.
As indicated above, the supplementary SQCT questions offer the opportunity to collect specific feedback on course outcomes or components that are not explicitly addressed in the core SQCT questions. When selecting questions, consider your course outcomes and design, and select questions that will provide useful feedback on important aspects of the course and that can inform future iterations of the course. If you are doing something new in your course, you might consider selecting questions that address the novel aspects of the course, and may ultimately lead to fine tuning of the course or even further innovation.
Only the instructor will have access to the results of her/his supplementary SQCT questions.
Guidelines for interpreting SQCT results are available at http://www.yourfeedback.uwo.ca/instructorsInterpretingData.cfm.
