Module Evaluation

At the end of each module, you will receive an email to ask you to complete a short questionnaire regarding the module. The Module Evaluation Questionnaire is the primary way that we can be sure to receive feedback from all students about your experiences on your module.

The system that we use to capture module evaluation is Blue. Wherever possible we will ask you to complete the survey in class on your own device.

How we will respond to your feedback

After the survey closes, you will receive a report with the survey results that students have given. Your module convenor will be encouraged to provide comments on the student feedback. Your feedback will be discussed by the school staff to identify how best to address any issues raised.

Your feedback will be discussed at the student-staff liaison groups. We encourage you to attend these and to read the action points that will be circulated following the meetings.

Your feedback from the survey will help shape the module for the next cohort of students who study it.

Things to consider when giving module feedback

  • Responses are on a 5-point scale – Strongly Agree, Agree, Neither Agree nor Disagree, Disagree and Strongly Disagree. We encourage you to consider each question and to decide whether you Agree or Disagree, rather than given the neutral option, as then we will have a stronger idea of where action should be targeted.
  • Do not confuse popularity with good teaching. When giving feedback, think about whether the lecturers have conveyed the information clearly, the support you have received and the feedback you have received so far (you will likely not have submitted your final assignment at the time of the survey).
  • When asked about what you liked about the module, think about an example the lecturer has done which has supported your learning, and that you would like to see in other modules. We will share these examples in the school, so the good practices can spread to other modules.
  • We will consider your suggestions, but we will not always choose or be able to enact them. Where we do not propose to make changes due to the methods having a sound underpinning, we will inform you.

About student feedback

We want to hear your honest feedback, both positive and negative so that it can inform our practice and ensure you have the best possible experience.

Not all student feedback can be actioned. There are sound pedagogical reasons for our approaches to delivering lectures and assignments. Other things we would like to do but are constrained. Where we choose not to, or cannot act on feedback, we will explain the reasons why, and are happy to discuss these with you.  

While providing, and responding to, feedback in class takes some time from lectures, we believe that listening and responding to students is important, and help ensure effective dialogue between us and our students.
