Directions for the Student Survey

Please write a complete sentence for each answer, putting down all the thoughts you can share about having class with me this year. You cannot leave any boxes blank, and the survey is long. However, as long as you please, please answer each question that you have an opinion on and don't rush through, you may write "Nothing." as an answer in some boxes. For example, if a question asks what you want to change about the class, you could put "Nothing." to save time. Click the link below to start. Work silently throughout class today. YOU MAY LISTEN TO MUSIC.
