Extra Credit End-of-Course Survey

The Waymaker modules that we have used this semester as a text are part of an experiment to improve content resources to enhance student learning.  In order to see what works, we need to know how you used the Waymaker software.  To that end, I would really appreciate your completing the following survey.  If you do, I will give you extra credit towards your final grade.

I won’t get access to the survey results until after grades go in so nothing you say will affect your grade in this course.  I want to know what you genuinely think and how you actually used Waymaker.  I will not look at how any one person responds to any of the questions.  Your candid responses will help future students in ECON 201 not just at UMW but around the country.  Thanks very much!

The end-of-course survey is here.
