CS61A Spring 2014 Final Survey
Please complete this survey by 11:59pm on Friday, May 16. Your feedback helps improve future iterations of CS 61A.

This survey is not anonymous; you are asked to enter your course login. Additional personal information is optional. Aside from your "last remark," responses to this survey will not affect your grade in the course or future recommendations in any way. We will not look at any other responses until final grades are submitted. We will only use your login in order to measure broad statistical relationships between student scores and survey responses, so that we can better understand the effectiveness of assignments and course topics.

Completion of this survey is worth 1.5 points. If a question is optional (not marked with a *), then you don't have to answer it to receive credit.

If 90% of students complete the survey, then everyone will receive 2.5/1 (full credit plus one extra credit point).

Thanks for a great semester; have a nice summer!

Paul Hilfinger
