I really enjoyed the Red light, Green light and Yellow light sticky note in the classroom. I have noticed that students often feel pressure to not bother to ask questions that they are stuck on. Hence, I would find this activity very useful(as an exit ticket) to have the general feedback on whether to re-teach or reassess the lessons that were taught.

I like the idea of a focus group that is accompanied by a questionnaire. The difficulty that I see here is maintaining that anonymity during whole group discussion.

The stoplight feedback seems like it would be a particulalry effective way to gather feedback from students. The green and yellow light may simply pertain to the lesson but the red light offers a chance for feedback about the learning environment.

The idea of using sticky notes for student feedback is a great way for them to really share their thoughts without having to put their name on it and can do it in a confident manner.

    - - Remember that we're trying to be solutions-oriented, right, so here's the challenge, let's focus on how we can get better. I set this up because I have always grown, I think, almost the most as a teacher because of the feedback students have given me. This is different than a survey, which is suggested as a one-way conversation, where I'm just receiving feedback, and I found so many times that I have so many questions about, "What did you mean here?" or "What can I do differently?". And in this form I'm able to have that conversation with some of those students. - Students use a post-it note to first of all, write either what they learned and post it on the green light, what questions they considered posted on the yellow light, and oftentimes the most important, if anything stopped their learning during class, and put that on the red light. - My role today was to facilitate conferences with students around their research projects, the questions that I used are really designed to put the student in the captain seat. You feel like you've learned anything about yourself as a researcher throughout this process? - Well I've realized that-- - I have a general conference log, but I try to really take notes as soon as the conference is over in a way that it can help inform the next conference that I'm gonna have with that student. How you doin', David? - Good.
