The Midterm Check-In is the opportunity for instructors to collect midterm feedback from their students using the Your Feedback system [i.e., the online system used at Western to administer the end of course Student Questionnaire on Courses and Teaching (SQCT) - feedback.uwo.ca].
If your instructors have opted in to the Midterm Check-In, this means that they are interested in getting feedback on the course so far. Instructors take your feedback seriously and want to identify strengths and opportunities for improving the course before the term is over.
You will receive an email with a link to the feedback questionnaire if any of your instructors have opted to do the Midterm Check-In. Be sure to fill out the questionnaire(s) before the close date of February 16th.
The length of the Midterm Check-In is determined by each individual instructor but filling in the questionnaire is likely to take anywhere between 2-10 minutes.
No. You choose when to complete each Midterm Check-In. You can even save your work part way through a questionnaire and then finish providing feedback on the course later. Your instructor may also give you time during class. Just be sure to finish it before the close date (February 16th)!
