Mid Module evaluation is a useful tool to support the retention, progression and attainment, process.
Ask your students questions such as:
Responses can be on post-its for students to stick on the wall or they can write responses on a piece of paper which they put in a collection box/hat/bin.
Report back to students what you can change in response to their comments.
The originator of a good technique for evaluation is Tom Angelo and his work on the One-Minute Paper. This quick task helps find out what students have gotten out of a lecture, and works well with both large and small classes.
Evaluation and resources about this technique are available below.
