Goal: Seek feedback from your learners about how you can improve a lesson, learning about a difficult topic, or an assessment.
Accomplish this goal: Give your learners an anonymous way to provide you honest feedback about lesson plans they did not enjoy, unsuccessful assessments, or topics they found difficult to comprehend. You could get learners to fill out a Google Form. I have provided a template below to copy and edit as you wish.
