The Mid-Semester Assessment (MSA) offers faculty of all ranks and from all divisions the chance to receive feedback on their teaching and students’ learning. The MSA is an individualized assessment that requires only 20 minutes of students’ time to complete.
Since 2007, the MSA has provided instructors with feedback on what’s working best in the course and in their teaching, feedback on those aspects of the course that could be strengthened and improved (and how to do so), and the chance to implement meaningful change while the course is still in progress.
The MSA is completely confidential from start to finish for both students and instructors. Only the instructor receives the results once the students complete the MSA.
