Halfway through the year.
Earlier this week I posted some student responses from my Teacher Report Card. I wanted to dig a little deeper into that survey.
A quick rundown; 1 = not at all and 5 = definitely. Here are the the top and bottom three based on student feedback (numbers only).
- Spends enough time on each concept = 3.83
- Makes me feel important = 3.84
- Gives fair punishments = 3.87
- Gives tests that reflect the material in the unit = 4.82
- Seems to enjoy teaching = 4.69
- Grades fairly = 4.69
Pacing, student relationships, and classroom management are my weakest areas, I could have nailed that without any feedback. HOWEVER, it is eye opening to me that my students are 101% aware of the areas I struggle with. Not really a surprise, just hard to admit that they see my struggles on a daily basis.
I received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback on grading and the fairness of class:
Concept Tests seem to be a thing students really enjoy; good thing I like them too! I got some… interesting… responses as well and need to just brush those off. But, the responses were fun to read and I look forward to this survey every semester (I will give it to the same group of students at the end of the year and compare responses).
Here are a few responses to my favorite question on the whole thing.
