Midterm Student Feedback: Results of a Pilot Study
Snooks, Margaret K.; Neeley, Sue E.; Revere, Lee
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v18 n3 p55-73 2007
The authors investigated the effect of midterm student feedback on final ratings of college teaching and courses. Five classes including 142 students participated in pre- and posttests with the intervention of a midterm group feedback process known in the literature as Bare Bones Questions (or BBQ). Three of the four hypotheses tested were supported. Students reported increases in both their learning and satisfaction, and their ratings of both instructors and courses increased. This research expands current knowledge by demonstrating quantitatively that midterm student feedback is likely to have a positive effect on students' evaluations and is a beneficial addition to other types of evaluations of teaching performance.
