Mid-Semester Feedback Submission Directions (Student Guide)

At a predetermined date around the middle of the semester, the Mid-Semester Feedback tool will be available for students to submit course feedback. Generally, students will have about one week to complete a feedback survey for each course you are taking.

Feedback submitted through the Mid-Semester Feedback tool is completely anonymous, and the submissions are only visible to the official instructor of record for your course.

Only users with the role of “Student” or “Auditor” in the course can submit feedback. Users with the role of "Visitor" or "Guest Student" are not eligible to access the Mid-Semester Feedback tool in a Canvas course.

Notes / Considerations

  • Some instructors may collect feedback using an alternative method other than the Mid-Semester Feedback tool.
    • Instructors who do this may turn off the Mid-Semester Feedback tool in their Canvas course.
  • If you are taking multiple classes, you will need to submit a separate Mid-Semester Feedback survey in each course site.
  • You will only get one (1) submission per course.
    • You may want to write out your answers to the questions before you go to the Mid-Semester Feedback tool to submit your comments.

Submitting Mid-Semester Feedback
