Mid-Semester Assessment of Teaching (MAT) Sign-up

The Center for Academic Excellence is pleased to offer the Fall 2023 Mid-Semester Assessment of Teaching (MAT) to all full- and part-time faculty.


Request deadline: Wednesday, October 4, 2023 (10 A.M.)


MAT Window: October 16-October 27, 2023


What is an MAT?


An MAT is an informal and confidential way for you to get constructive student feedback on student learning and your teaching. MATs are offered midway through a term to provide time to make mid-stream adjustments or improvements based on student input. MATs are conducted during the first or last 20 minutes of a class session.


To schedule an MAT for your course, please complete the MAT request form (below) by Wednesday, October 4, 2023 (by 10 AM). Note that MATs are limited to one class section per instructor each semester and occur during the weeks of October 16-October 27, 2023. Once signed up, a CAE liaison will follow up with you to schedule:


  • The 20-minute class session where your assigned CAE liaison will collect data from your students, and;
  • A follow-up debriefing conversation with your assigned CAE liaison outside of class.
