Assess teaching

Adding questions to your CIS

Adding optional multiple-choice questions can provide additional student feedback tailored to your needs.   To implement this option, simply provide up to twenty questions to the student administrator prior to administering the CIS. The questions can be presented using a slide or printed and passed out with the regular survey.

Additional questions may have up to five response choices, should be identified as optional, and be numbered 1-20. Be sure to keep a numbered copy of your added questions, because the printout of your CIS results contains only the question number with no information regarding its content.

The following is a list of possible supplemental questions by topic. We suggest using Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Neutral, Agree, and Strongly Agree as response options for these questions.

Course organization

Use of technology

Course content

Quality of presentations

Classroom discussion

Interaction with students
