What is Flash Survey?

Flash Survey is an opportunity for students to let their voices be heard. At Kent State University, we are committed to ensuring the quality of our academic programs, our teaching and the learning experiences of our students. Student feedback on courses and instructors is pivotal for helping assess the impact of our efforts and helping individual instructors further develop their teaching skills. Flash Survey results are also typically part of the package of material reviewed when making continuing employment and promotion decisions. Flash Surveys matter!

  • Students


    Your voice matters! Flash Survey responses you provide are used as part of the process of evaluating your instructor. Your feedback, including comments, can be used to improve your teacher’s performance and considered in decisions about ongoing employment or promotion. We take this survey seriously and hope you do, too!

  • Faculty


    Flash Survey student responses are used as one source of input for evaluating your instructional abilities, helping to identify your strengths and opportunities for improving your interactions with students. It’s in everyone’s interest that you encourage your students to complete the SSI, giving students voice and ensuring more representative responses.

  • Academic Leadership and Schedulers

    Academic Leadership and Schedulers

    Flash Surveys are one source of input for assessing faculty classroom strengths and opportunities for improvement. Flash Survey relies on unit administrators and course schedulers to vet information from Banner to ensure that the right students receive the right surveys. Reports are used by faculty and chairs and also included for consideration in RP&T decisions.
