Evaluation Surveys
P2PU uses surveys at the beginning and end of each learning circle to document the successes, opportunities, and limitations of learning circles in a way that is not intrusive to the values of community, peer learning, and equity that we seek to cultivate.
This information is collected automatically using a combination of P2PU’s own software and integrated Typeform surveys. P2PU data collection and retention practices are compliant with GDPR, as outlined in our privacy policy.

Facilitator Surveys

Facilitator Pre-Survey

On the last step of the learning circle creation process, facilitators are asked to privately reflect on their goals for the learning circle and optionally ask for help if needed. These answers are shared with the P2PU staff and the facilitator's team (if applicable), as well as being referenced in the post survey.
Survey questions:
  1. 1.
    What do you hope to achieve by facilitating this learning circle?
  2. 2.
    Is there anything that we can help you with as you get started?

Facilitator Post-Survey

Facilitators are emailed a link to this closing survey during the last meeting of the learning circle:
  1. 1.
    What did you hope to achieve when you signed up to facilitate this learning circle? [short answer]
  2. 2.
    To what extent did you achieve this? [1-5]
  3. 3.
    Did anything about the learning circle surprise you? [short answer]
  4. 4.
    Do you have any stories from the learning circle you want to share with the P2PU community? [short answer]
  5. 5.
    About how many people showed up for the first/second/final meeting? [numerical entry]
  6. 6.
    How well did the online course work as a learning circle? [1-5]
  7. 7.

Ratings and typed information from this survey is moderated to check for personally-identifying details, then shared anonymously in the course library to help identify high-quality learning materials. Anonymized details are occasionally used in P2PU's social media testimonials.
