Student Feedback Questionnaires (SFQ) offer students the opportunity to provide feedback on their learning experience in each of their courses at Humber and University of Guelph Humber. Feedback from students helps us understand their experience and gives them a voice in their educational journey.
SFQs are deployed every semester via Blackboard Ultra.
With the goal of increasing our SFQ response rates in Winter 2023, instructors are asked to:
- Set a time during class when students are given 20 minutes to complete the SFQ
- Remember to enable the SFQ in Blackboard using this quick, 2-step process.
What is the SFQ?
SFQs offer students the opportunity to provide feedback on their learning experience in each of their courses at Humber and University of Guelph Humber. Feedback from students helps us understand their experience and gives them a voice in their educational journey. All student responses are anonymous and confidential.
When is the SFQ available to students?
At approximately the 70% mark in the semester. In a 14-week course, this means SFQs will be pushed to Blackboard by week 10. SFQs remain open until the second last week of class. Dates are shared with instructors in advance.
Can an instructor customize the SFQ(s)?
Yes! Each instructor has the option to add up to three of their own Likert scale questions.
7-days prior to the SFQ launch date, watch for an email with the reminder of the option to add up to three custom questions to their SFQ by completing the Question Personalization (QP). Note that the responses to these questions are only seen by the instructor.
I have questions about the process, who do I ask?
For questions regarding personalizing the SFQ, analyzing results, or for questions on how to integrate feedback into practice, please contact our Innovative Support teams.
The Value of the SFQ and Completing the SFQ
Our commitment to teaching and learning excellence encourages us to focus on understanding and improving the student learning experience. For this reason, we value student feedback and the SFQ process provides students an excellent opportunity to have their voices heard. The SFQ also allows faculty to gain insight into the learning environment they have created for their students, equipping them with critical data that can inform decisions around future iterations of their course content and classroom experiences.
