Each Mid-SURE category is assigned at least one evaluator who is familiar with the respective field. We try to assign no more than six students per section so that the evaluator has ample time to provide constructive feedback. A few sections may have several evaluators, so some students may receive feedback from multiple perspectives.

What to Expect During the Event

Mid-SURE 2021 is a virtual event. It will be open for viewing and evaluation of presentations July 28 - 29, 2021. Once the event is open to the public, you may post comments/questions to presenters. There will also be dedicated times to chat with presenters on July 28 from 1:00 - 2:15 PM and 2:30 - 3:45 PM Eastern. You may ask questions of presenters prior to 1:00 PM, but presenters may not respond until their assigned chat time. See the Mid-SURE Schedule of Events for specific chat times for each category. Please complete evaluations by 11:59 PM on July 29.

Evaluators will be sent instructions by email. Evaluators will provide feedback to the student presenters through the event platform, Symposium by ForagerOne. When you log into the event, you will see the presentations you are assigned to review and the evaluation form.

When providing feedback, please remember our commitment to advancing a culture of respect at MSU, and that you uphold our values for advancing student learning and success.
