Introductory Survey

As I start each class, I like to learn a little bit about my students and their expectations for the course so that I can both know and teach them better. This questionnaire gives you a chance to tell me something about yourself.

Because paper questionnaires can restrict or otherwise affect your answers, I prefer to do these surveys electronically. To submit it electronically, fill out the form and click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page. If you'd prefer to take the survey "by hand," simply turn in your answers to me in class.

I'll admit that my surveys include somewhat strange, casual, or "fluffy" questions. I find such questions useful, as they give me a better sense of who you are and how you react to things.

For those who care, I've made a copy of my answers to a similar survey available online.

Where are you from?
What courses are you taking this term? Include meeting times.
What other CS courses (or related courses) have you taken?
What computer languages do you know?
Why are you taking this course?
What do you expect to learn or gain from this course?
What are your biggest concerns for this class?
What do you like most about Grinnell?
What do you like least about Grinnell (or what do you dislike most about Grinnell)?
Most surveys like this ask you to list your five favorite books, movies, TV shows, CDs, chia animals, buildings on campus, professors, or whatever. I'll give you a littl emore freedom. Pick a class of objects (it can be one that I listed, it can be one that I didn't list), and list your five favorite objects in that class.
Tell me a little more about yoruself. You might describe hobbies, interests, goals, whatever.
What other questions should I have asked on this form?
Since I'm asking you all of these questions, it's only fair that you get to ask me some questions. What, if anything, would you like to know about me?
