The Student Assessment of Learning Gains Instrument is designed for instructors from all disciplines who wish to learn more about how students evaluate various course elements in terms of how much they have gained from them.

I've used the learning gains survey during the Spring 2001 semester in two different environments: one is in a graduate education course and the second is in a 10-week intensive faculty development event.
Customizing the survey to my specific needs took about 1 1/2 hours initially, and then after editing and revising I spent another hour refining the tool and learning how to make it available to students.
Given that the current focus in assessment is on learning outcomes, the survey provides a good example of how one would go about assessing for learning gains. Participants in the faculty development event who were exposed to this tool indicated a high level of interest, and a majority of the participants plan to incorporate the tool into their current courses.
The tool generated a great deal of qualitative data from faculty about their learning gains during the faculty development event. This data was generated in the text boxes after each section of the survey, where individuals are asked to explain the ratings they gave in the prior section.
First time users may have to spend a bit of time figuring out how to customize the tool. The instructions are heavy on the text, and are not designed graphically to direct the eye.
The tool is somewhat clunky and does not rate well when compared to ease of use of tools such as Zaplet or Zoomerang.
