USRI Resources for Students

By providing feedback to instructors, students help ensure academic excellence in the university's curriculum.

Good feedback is important to help improve the quality of student learning at the university.

Give examples

Comment on your learning experience with concrete examples. Specific points about your learning experience can help an instructor understand your perspective of the class.

Say more, not less

Explain what worked for you in the class design, or what you thought needed improvement.

Be specific

Give feedback on course materials, with specific examples or points for the instructor to consider.

Examples of constructive feedback



Great class!

The way you connected the concepts to real-world examples really helped me understand.

This course sucks.

It would be helpful to have the reading material earlier. I didn’t have time to prepare.

You talk too much.

There wasn’t an opportunity for the groups to share our thoughts and findings. This was disappointing after so much hard work.

Best teacher ever!

The combination of research, discussion and field work was exciting and challenging.
