An event is not an experience until you reflect upon it
- Michael Fullan
To most instructors, the term “teaching evaluation” means end-of-course evaluation by students. Typically, the students in the class complete questionnaires that provide a summative rating of the instructor’s performance. But you may not want to wait for end-of-year evaluations of your practice. If you are interested in ongoing feedback throughout the year, you may wish to use formative assessment practices.
