Midterm Formative Assessments & Surveys

This video, created by an instructor at Iowa State, gives a great overview of why instructors might want to include midterm evaluations and what the difference is between formative and summative assessments. Though the video shows a face-to-face course, the idea of communicating with your students, considering options to modify your course, and sharing the results of the assessment with students remains the same.

Tools for Assessment

  • TooFAST (Free Assessment Summary Tool) – Free, online, anonymous tool sponsored by several Canadian universities. It contains an enormous database of questions for instructors to choose from, or you may write your own.
  • Web Toolbox – University of Illinois system tool for developing surveys. You will have to login in with your UIS email address and NetID password.
  • Blackboard Survey Tool – The survey tool within Blackboard shows you which students completed a survey, but results are not associated with specific students.
