Traditional surveys are submitted at the end of the semester which makes students less likely to provide feedback as what they say will not affect their own learning.
Wyblo constantly assesses students’ drivers of motivation and provides updated dashboards to all its users: whenever something does not work well, professors or administrations can act proactively to enhance the learning experience of the students.
Students perceive the feedback forms as time-consuming as they usually take 5-10 minutes to be completed. In addition, the surveys generally use Likert scales (Agree-Disagree) or rating scales which make them very standard and do not help the students answer accurately.
Students receive a notification to provide feedback at the end of the class. The input only requires 80 seconds to be provided and consists in answering hypothetical projective questions, statements in which the students can recognize themselves and self-reflect on their answers.
As the students answer only one time, their daily mood affects the accuracy of the survey. Mood can be altered by multiple factors that can drastically influence the students in how they are feeling at the moment they reply to the survey.
Collecting feedback right after class leverages off the daily mood effects. Besides, the hypothetical questions used are designed to give an objective and accurate assessment.
As the survey is submitted at the end of the semester, it’s hard for the students to remember what happened during the whole semester, so the evaluation will be based on the most positive or negative events.
By answering at the end of the class, students can focus on just-in-time feedback. The result would then show a trend of how the different pillars of motivation change, allowing students, professors, and the administration to be aware of the learning journey.
Institutions often rely on an evaluation office or person responsible to collect, compile and send the report to the professors, program managers, directors, and so on. Besides, students rarely receive a constructive report of their learning process which decreases their interest in providing feedback.
Students, professors, and each level of an organization will have their personalized dashboards continuously and immediately updated. Each school, department, and program will be able to see the courses they manage.
It takes time to prepare the surveys, to send them to the students, collect the answer, analyze and compile the responses, and send the report back to the professors (or the rest of the organization). The results are not immediately available and not continuously updated.
Wyblo system is designed to be fully automatic: students receive a notification to provide feedback which in a matter of seconds is analyzed and displayed in everyone’s dedicated dashboards. If necessary, the professor and the administration can create customized surveys for their students.
