A Mid-term Formative Evaluation

You can learn a great deal about how your students are learning in a course, and what adjustments both you and your students might make, by asking your students to give your course a mid-term evaluation. Dr. Michael Martin, Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture, explains how and why to do midterm evaluations, and how a "formative" evaluation differs from a "summative", or end-of-term, evaluation.
