Knowlede surveys are used for several purposes:
they help students and instructors
evaluate how much learning goes on in a class
they provide students with an idea of what the instsructor expects them to learn
they provide students with practice exam questions
they make sure the instructor is organized and has identified teaching goals
Students take the surveys once at the beginning of the semester and then again at the end. They may also take the survey prior to individual exams. The results are then compared to assess learning.
