As part of our formative Faculty Assessment and Annual Review (FAAR) plan, we survey our learners and provide them with an opportunity to offer us feedback on our course.
The process is pretty simple; we are to follow a 3-6-12 plan. We must select a minimum of 3 prompts from a bank of approximately 40 collaboratively produced prompts. We must have a minimum of 6 prompts and a maximum of 12. While 3 prompts must come from our bank, the remaining 3-9 prompts may come from the bank or be designed by the teacher.
To collect feedback from my Algebra I learners, I used a Google doc form to ask for feedback from my learners. You are welcome to look at and experiment with a copy of my Algebra I Course Feedback – JGough 2011. Feel free to experience the form from the perspective of my learners. Play. It is a copy; you won’t mess up my collected data.
Here are a couple of reoccurring questions: Are 13-14 year-olds capable of giving quality feedback? Will we learn anything from collecting feedback from the perspective of these young learners? I’ll leave it up to you to answer these questions.
Below are the responses from 34/35 of my learners. The remaining learner has been absent for a couple of days and has not completed the survey.

My Reflection and Summary
Well? I’d love to know what you think. Are 13-14 year-olds capable of giving quality feedback? Will we learn anything from collecting feedback from the perspective of these young learners?
