Student Survey Questions

Sample student survey questions to solicit student opinions on a course's content and teacher; a free template easy to use with your survey tool.

The questions are not exactly as a respondent would see them; they are instead formatted in such a way that they can easily be copied and pasted into an online survey tool (such as SurveyMonkey), so please feel free to do so!
