Open Thread Wednesday: Mid-Semester Course Evaluation?

Many of us are now approaching the halfway point of the semester, which means it might be a good time to revisit a topics we’ve covered a number of times here at ProfHacker: mid-semester course evaluations.

Most recently, Meg Worley shared her advice about how to get the most out of such evaluations. (You might also want to read Amy’s tips on mid-semester sanity maintenance, while you’re at it.)

I’ve used mid-semester course evaluations successfully in several of my classes over the years. With today’s open thread, though, we’d like to hear from you.

What has your experience been with these kinds of evaluations? Are you conducting them this semester? What advice do you have for others who might be considering mid-semester course evaluations? Please share in the comments.
