One of the most common indirect course assessment methods is the course evaluation survey. Course evaluation surveys provide a way for instructors to capture students’ perceptions of their learning experiences and attitudes towards the learning process. Surveys can be used to offer insight into course design, and inform course, instructional and curricular improvements.
