Student Feedback

PASC Student Feedback Form 

Description of Tool & How it is Used (when it is administered, how it is administered) Description of How Data are Used to Inform Program Practices Tool Currently in Use? (Y/N)
We developed a PASC Student Feedback Form to gather information on student programmatic needs. Initially this form was developed as a way to provide ongoing support for our students during the pandemic. We included items asking students how we can support during COVID-19, transition to online instruction, and CalAPA state testing structures and needs. We gave the the survey to all students in each semester beginning in Spring 2020. It was administered via a google form and was sent out to all students by the faculty.  As a PASC leadership team, we read through all the items and discussed how we can improve our program structures and supports based on student feedback. For example, as a result of the feedback we received from the PASC Student Feedback Form, we created a special CalAPA support session for students who needed the additional time and support. 
We will continue using the PASC Student Feedback Form structure but we want to be more consistent on when we distribute to the students and how we follow up with them. We would like to consistently distribute each semester so we can evaluate during our PASC leadership team meeting at least once a semester.
