A few weeks ago, I shared a detailed post on how I use Evernote to conduct my end-of-year student evaluations. The other part of my final meeting with families includes them filling out a questionnaire.
The benefit is two-sided. On the one hand, the questionnaires are about me receiving feedback to improve not only my teaching but my business.
On the other side of that, however, is that I think having parents and students both ponder through these questions, helps them evaluate their own efforts/interactions over the past year.
In reflecting, they will feel either a good sense of accomplishment and realization of the quality studio in which they are invested (good I hope!) or awareness that maybe some things need to change. This is a good point for further discussions on practice habits, etc.
I’ve always simply sent a pdf to parents or linked to a pdf in Dropbox so they can download and print the form. This year, I finally got around to doing an online form on my website. My site is built on WordPress and the plugin I use is just a basic form builder – Visual Form Builder.
I wanted to share the form with you today in Word format so you can download and make any modifications you need.
Every year I tweak the forms just a bit depending on what I want to know. I will often include questions at the end of the form regarding special classes I’m thinking about offering to gauge general interest or ask for feedback regarding a specific event I hosted that year.
