Tips for increasing response rate

  1. Scheduling time during class is the best way to increase response rates. It is important to consider strategy when scheduling.
    1. Scheduling time in the middle of class can capture the most student involvement
    2. Schedule time on a day that has a quiz/test or other important activity
    3. Communicate through a myCourses announcement as well on the syllabus so they are aware ahead of time
    4. Remind students to bring a device (mobile or otherwise) to class so they can participate in the evaluation process
    5. Ensure that all students have access to the evaluation
  2. Build buy-in - Explain to students why their feedback is important to you and how you use their feedback, specific examples are helpful
  3. Although students do get system reminders to do their evaluations, it’s helpful to add personalized reminders
  4. Consider adding the evaluation as a calendar event to your Canvas course as an additional reminder for the students. For help adding these see https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12797-415241296
