Anonymous Mid-Semester Questionnaire

Please take a few minutes to answer the questions below. This is an anonymous survey, so please don’t put your name on it -- and if you want to disguise your handwriting or something, please do! But rest assured that we’re looking for feedback on how the instructor is doing and how the class is going; nothing you say here will affect your grade in any way.

1.How much time, on average per class night, do you spend doing homework and studying for this class? (Note: of course there will be certain days more, certain days less, but please circle the average.)

           0-15 min.          15-30 min.          30-45 min.          45-60 min.          60+ min.

2.How helpful are the homework worksheets?

 And how hard are they? How is the length?

3.How helpful are the workbook assignments?

 Have you done any of the listening lab assignments? If so, are they useful?

 Have you used the CD-ROM that came with the textbook? If so, is it useful?

4.How are the vocab and grammar quizzes? Do they accurately reflect what we’re learning in class; are they too hard/too easy; too long/too short?

5.How often have you visited the class webpage (not at all? once or twice? once a week? every night?)

 How helpful is the class webpage? Is there anything there you find particularly good or bad?

 Is there anything you’d like me to add to (or remove from) the webpage?

6.In class, I wish we’d do more (or focus more on) ... / I really like ...

7.In class, I don’t like it when we (or the instructor) ....

8.We moved too quickly when we were learning ...?

9.We moved too slowly when we were learning ...?

10.Should there be more/less German spoken in class:

 by the instructor?

 by the students?

11.If I were (responsibly) teaching this class for a week, I would ...

12.How hard is this class -- how much effort or time are you putting into this class, as compared to your other courses this semester?

13.What grade do you expect to receive in this class? What grade do you think you deserve? (If you don’t want to answer, that’s okay -- but really, this has NO effect on your actual grade!)

14.If the instructor were to be graded for his/her teaching in this class, what grade would you give him/her?

15.Any other comments?  We’re especially interested in knowing what you expected this class to be like compared to what it has turned out to be in reality.  Anything you’d like more/less of, are disappointed about, didn’t expect and are getting, expected and aren’t getting?
