This survey was presented to the students after my second teaching experience.

It was given to allow the students in each lab sections to asses my teaching and role in the lab. I will provide for you the percentages for some questions and for open ended responses I will offer you three responses that reflect the vast majority of the comments given. This survey was very important to me as an educator because it allowed me to gauge my strengths and weaknesses in order to make the proper adjustments:

1. How do you feel the material in today's lecture was presented? Great Good Average Poor Other 2. How well do you feel the material in today's lecture was organized? Great Good Average Poor Other 3. Do you feel that all questions were answered with clarity during lab today? Strongly Agree Agree Disagree Strongly Disagree Other 4. Do you feel that my attire was professional for the classroom setting? Strongly Agree Agree Disagree Strongly Disagree Other 66.7% 25.5% 5.9% 2.0% 3.9% 54.9% 39.2% 5.9% 0.0% 3.9%

Also included are the comments of the Teaching Assistant I worked with this semester: Jackie was a great intern! She was on top of assignments and quizzes for all classes and kept the grade book up to date very well. When it came time to teach labs, she had informative PowerPoint presentations and related new and complex concepts to things the students could understand. She kept everyone awake, involved, and moving through the assignment so everything ran efficiently. She also knew when to ask for help or clarification if she was confused about an activity or portion of a lab and made sure she had the concepts down to communicate well with the students. I think my students enjoyed having her in class and she helped me run the labs smoothly throughout the semester. She stayed involved with each class, got to know students, and stayed after to keep everything updated. I love her :)
