Questions for Class Feedback

This semester, I'm being very nice to my class and giving them a few 'attendance quizzes'. As the course proceeds, I thought that these quizzes could be a good opportunity to get some feedback about the class if the student chose to do so. If so, the student would need to feel comfortable giving me feedback because their names would be on the paper.

So I was curious if anyone might have suggestions about questions I could pose to the students, try to get some feedback about the class, but have the student be comfortable about putting their name on the paper.
