Examples of sources of feedback and evaluation

Some examples of evaluation tasks which are used to demonstrate different ways to evaluate several aspects of a course.

Minute paper:

Commonly referred to as ‘minute paper’, this simple exercise asks you to identify one thing you have learnt this week and one thing that could be improved.

Start-Stop-Continue

Stop-Start-Continue is a quick method for gathering information aimed to improve specific aspects of your practice.

For example, in a class you could ask students to respond to three questions:

  • List one or two things that I, the educator, am currently doing that are not working (things I should STOP doing).
  • List one or two things that would be beneficial for me to START doing.
  • List one or two things I am currently doing that I should CONTINUE.

As with other methods to evaluate your practice, you should review suggestions promptly, summarize them for your class, make adjustments to your teaching as soon as possible or indicate why you will not make the suggested changes.
