END OF YEAR HONORS CHEM SURVEY

Please take a few minutes right now to take this quick survey. It is voluntary and completely anonymous. I only ask that if you do take it, please take it seriously. Your honest and thoughtful feedback is very valuable to me. Thank you.



  1. Consider the following sixteen features of the class. Rate them by the following scale:

    1 = highly effective in promoting mastery of the material
    3 = fairly effective in promoting mastery of the material.
    5 = not very effective at all in promoting mastery of the material.


          1 2 3 4 5     no oppinion - never tried it
      Book work   
      Worksheets   
      Self-paced Powerpoint tutorials   
      Screencast videos on topics like density or the metric system   
      Jing videos on solutions to specific problems   
      Video-games like the sig fig blaster on scratch.com   
      On-line problem sets (quia)   
      Cheminar Review format   
      Labs   
      Lab follow-up questions   
      Student demos   
      Teacher demos   
      Schooltube demo/lab videos   
      Clicker sessions (activ-vote)   
      Other review games (naming bee, jeopardy...)   
      Class discussions   


  1. Consider the following sixteen statements. Be aware that some of the items are written as positive statements and others are written as negative statements to hopefully prevent students from quickly rating all items the same.
