Use Student Feedback to become a Better Teacher

One of the most High-Powered tool for evaluating teaching and methods is the feedback from the students. It is well believed that students who are active in the class are not necessarily the students who have grasped the concept and not all students who comprehend the concept are equally as participative. nClass comes as a helping aid for teachers to get feedback from the entire class, allowing to make course corrections during the semester and not wait till the next term. Here are some ways faculty can use nClass to collect feedback from the students:

Instant feedback

After teaching a new or a reviewed concept, the teacher can conduct a quick question or a comprehension poll, allowing instant feedback so that teacher can be sure the students are on the same page and have understood the topic presented. It helps the teacher adjust their pace, instruction material and methods accordingly.

Hear student perspectives and reflect

Using nClass to digitally administer the class discussion or conducting an anonymous poll the teacher can collect data quickly. Even though teachers have been doing this already, but often the same students raise their hand. Using nClass, you can increase participation and in turn help you hear from all students not just the most active ones. nClass can instantly aggregate this feedback for a large class, allowing you to adapt the pedagogy. Listening to student questions and responses may stimulate the teacher to reflect and review their lecture materials.

Anonymous, Honest Feedback

Encourage students to be honest and fear-free by using the anonymous features of nClass. Student responses and comprehension inputs can be made anonymous so the student identity is hidden, but showing the aggregate of responses to the teacher. The teacher can use this feature to increase participation and student engagement.
