Viewing / Downloading Student Mid-Semester Feedback Submissions

The Mid-Semester Feedback tool is a Yale-developed survey tool created to specifically support Yale College faculty in the collection of anonymous student feedback during the midterm of the traditional fall and spring semesters. Despite the focus on Yale College, the tool is available to all schools who would like to use it. 

The Mid-Semester Feedback survey opens during a pre-designated, roughly 2 week period during the midterm of the semester, and allows students to complete a separate survey for each of their courses that offer the survey. Once filled out, instructors can go in and start viewing / downloading their student's mid-semester feedback submissions.

Instructors will not be notified when new submissions are recorded, so instructors will need to periodically check for new submissions via the Mid-Semester Feedback tool.

The Mid-Semester Feedback submissions for Fall, Spring, and Summer courses are purged on August 31 of every year. If you want to keep copies of your feedback, you will need to download them prior to the purge date.

Instructors can begin viewing Student submissions immediately and read students submissions as they come in. To access these submissions:

  1. Go to the "Mid-Semester Feedback" tool in the Course Navigation menu.
  2. Click on "View Submissions" link.
  1. Once there, instructors can click "Download All Submissions" to get a file containing the responses for all currently available submissions
  2. They can also click on the submission dates for individual submissions to view the submissions separately in the browser one at a time.
