18 March 2024

Complete your SPOT survey

The Student Perspectives of Teaching (SPOT) surveys gather feedback on courses to help instructors, departments and faculties improve curriculum and instruction. The SPOT surveys are an opportunity for students to make their voice heard and provide valuable feedback making a difference in the curriculum for future students.

For this term, SPOT surveys are open from March 28 to April 12 for most courses.

Students will receive an email with a list of their courses and a link to provide feedback on their courses and instruction. The SPOT surveys are anonymous and should take less than ten minutes to complete.

As a reminder, survey questions changed as of July 1, 2023 and now consists of six sections with three questions in each section, for a total of 18 questions. You can learn more about this change and why it was implemented here.

If you are an instructor, please note that beginning with winter 2024 courses, you are now required to provide 15 minutes of class time for students to complete the survey and you are not permitted to be present during this time. This communicates the importance of the activity to students and has shown to be an effective way to encourage participation.
