Faculty Blog: How do you encourage students to complete end-of-term evaluations?

End-of term course evaluations will open at 8:00 AM on Tuesday, December 1.   Many on campus have had great success achieving a response rate above 70%, which is remarkably good for a survey like this.  How do you encourage students to participate?  What do you say or do that provides them with opportunities, reasons, or incentives to give you the constructive feedback you need to improve?

    The only thing that worked well for me was to use the last day of class for review and then hand out the evaluations in class. Few participate online. Most students think they will pick up hints of what’s on the final if they go to class that day.
