Importing the Mines Midcourse Feedback Survey into your Canvas course(s)

The Faculty Senate Task Force on the Evaluation of Teaching has created a brief ungraded Canvas survey that instructors can use to collect midcourse feedback from students about the course. 

The survey includes two broad sections: feedback for the instructor and self-reflection for students. The questions are brief and can help students and instructors check in with themselves and each other as the semester progresses. The information gathered in this optional survey will only be available to you. Once you have imported the survey into your Canvas course, you are welcome to adjust the wording of the introductory text and the questions to best suit your needs. Additionally, you may choose to remove the student reflection questions (#3-4) if you wish.
