Teaching Feedback - Student Survey Questions

Survey Instructions

Your instructor has voluntarily opted into the Teaching Feedback process with the Office of Curriculum and Instructional Support (CIS) at CMU. We appreciate your instructor's interest in feedback, self-reflection, and enhancing teaching practice. Though your instructor may be able to review student ratings and comments as part of the process, your name will not be collected, so your instructor will not know who submitted each response. The more constructive and specific you can be in your comments, the more likely your instructor is to understand and be able to use your feedback. Thank you!
