At the end of most of my instruction sessions now I ask students to do a combination Metacognitive Exercise and assessment form that consists of three questions: What is one thing you learned that was new and/or helpful? What is one thing that is still confusing or that you would still like to know about? Overall, how satisfied were you with the instruction session (scale of 1-5)?
For my last instruction session I got this response in the “What is one thing you would still like to know” category:
Does researching get easier over time? With practice? Depending on the subject?
What would you tell this student?
