students to use a soft-leaded (HB) pencil to fill in the circles (perhaps
extra pencils should be brought to class)--the mark reader will not
pick up inked responses. Students must completely fill in the appropriate
circles--marks such as 'X' or '/' cannot be read reliably. If a student
wishes to change a response, the undesired mark must be completely erased,
not merely crossed out.
- If open-ended
questions have been included as part of the questionnaire, instruct
the students to respond to these on the back of the form. It is essential
that students only fill in the appropriate circles on the front of the
form as any other marks may interfere with the mark reading. Note that
changing the name of the instructor or course by writing over it is
not sufficient to have this change reflected in the reports. Any such changes must explicitly be brought to the attention of the TSQS operator via a covering letter.
- All questionnaires,
including unused ones, should be collected at the end of the class.
Students should not be allowed the option of completing and submitting
the questionnaires at their own convenience. Questionnaires that are
submitted separately from those of the rest of the class will not be
accepted for processing since the conditions under which these questionnaires
were completed is open to question.
Unless your Department has specified a different procedure, arrange for another person (perhaps a student) to collect the completed forms and return them to the Chair or designate who will then forward them to TSQS.
Since each questionnaire has the original Requisition Number printed on
it, it is not necessary to submit a Requisition form with the completed
questionnaires. However, please ensure that questionnaires from several
requisitions are not mixed together when delivering them for processing.
