I've asked each of the different majors groups in the department to think about the department assessment we've done, talk about it in their groups, and then email me a very short list of a couple of good things, and a couple of things they think need improvement.
Of the several groups in the department, one sent an email.
One handed me this:
And the others have sent nothing.
Seriously, a couple of sticky pages clumped together. And the people who handed this in are amongst the more prickly about students handing in things in just this or that way. They'd never accept this from a student for anything. It's still better than nothing!
I just got a very bad email today and am now trying to solve a problem I didn't know about a couple of hours ago. I have a feeling this is the tip of the iceberg.
