Teachers, professors, trainers, or anyone who conducts a class of any kind can use TeachBack to get feedback from students on any class, the class they just taught, the latest week of classes, or for the entire semester. Free for download for both students and teachers at any level, TeachBack gathers student feedback about their educators' effectiveness through a variety of pre-made surveys.
Teachers can now create their own custom passwords to use for students to subscribe to their polls.
Now teachers can also create their own polls for students using the five-star response system, plus space for individual comments. Content based questions can be created that use the system as well as qualitative poll questions on students' response to instruction, materials, activities and more.
The app provides a simple user experience that produces this feedback in real-time. When teachers and professors use TeachBack with their students, they can expect to gain insight that will allow them to improve their lectures, lessons, and classroom experience.
If applied across a school or academic department, TeachBack provides a valuable measurement tool that helps assess and improve overall institutional effectiveness.
The polls are all anonymous, and the results are secure and only available to the instructor.
An online teacher guide to the use of TeachBack is available at the website. Feedback and ideas for version 2.0 are welcome!
There are four pre-written polls available. Instruction, Engagement, Instructor, and Hybrid (a combination of the other poll questions). In addition, comments are allowed on each poll as well.
