I always want to know what my students think of me.
Not in a "shower me with praises because I am so great" kind of way, but just knowing how they felt about being in our classroom.
I usually do a survey each quarter, but for some reason, probably new grade, curriculum, etc... I didn't get to it.
Therefore, I wanted to make sure the students completed an end of year survey.
I used Google Forms to create the survey, and then I posted the link on Schoology.
This year I used a survey I found on TeachersPayTeachers for FREE, and I tweaked it a little.
I liked this one because I teach 4th grade and it was pretty basic.
After giving it to them, I realized I should have tweaked my options a little more, but there's always next year.:)
I made it anonymous because I wanted the kids to be honest.
Here's are some of the ones that stood out:
- 100% of my students think that I am good at my job. LOVE it!
- Only 52% of my students think I am available to answer their questions,32% said most of the time, and 16% said no. Hmmm, I will have to ask my class what I can do to fix this next year.
- I was happy to see that many kids did not choose, "No", when they didn't choose "Yes", instead they chose "Most of the time."
In the comment section, it was great to see that I am the best teacher ever.:) I have to admit it does make me feel good about the community we built all year.
However, this one had me cracking up, "I think you need to work on your attitude." LOL Another one I will discuss with my class. Maybe this student sees something I don't.
Good or bad feedback, end of year surveys are a learning experience to prepare me for the next year!
