End of Semester Survey: Spring 2012a

Thanks for taking the time to fill out this survey. ILP compiles information about each semester at each school so that we know where we need to improve the program, and also to inform future teachers about the general characteristics of the school where they will be going. We really value your feedback!

There are several statements below regarding different aspects of the program that are important for us to evaluate. By each statement, please select the option that bests describes how much you agree or disagree with the statement. It might be difficult to separate each statement because there is some overlap, but please try your best not to let really strong agreement or disagreement in one area affect your agreement or disagreement in another area.

The information you give us on this survey will not be used in connection with your identity. We may post individual scores or averages, etc. on a website describing your school, but never in connection with your name or anything that could identify who gave the information. Your email is required only for tracking purposes (preventing duplicate responses, measuring response rate, etc.)

Thanks again for your service and for your feedback to help us know where we should focus our efforts to improve and where we can commend schools or internal departments for doing a good job!

***Questions 4-6 are only for those who lived with host families.***
