"As the use of computers grows on campuses, so does the electronic networking. In courses where every student has access to electronic mail – also known as E-mail – this technology offers faculty a good alternative to the usual paper-and-pencil CATs. The instructor poses a question to the class, via electronic mail, about his or her teaching, and invites student responses. Students respond to the E-mail question with a personal, though anonymous, message sent to the teacher’s electronic mailbox."

 Purpose"The purpose of Electronic Mail Feedback is to provide a simple, immediate channel through which faculty can pose questions about the class and students can respond to them." — Classroom Assessment Techniques, Angelo, TA and Cross, KP, 1993
