Giving students a survey on the first day? Think about what you are asking, and why

Faculty are gearing up for another semester of instruction, and many are eager to get to know more about their students. Knowing more about the students enrolled in a course can assist an instructor with customizing course content, method of instruction, student expectations, and so much more. Institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University offer resources for the first day of class and suggestions for ways to collect baseline data on and from students. There is a high school version of a first day survey compiled by California State University, Northridge.
