Student Feedback On Learning and Teaching (aka Unit Feedback)
This is an on-line questionnaire that provides for regular evaluation and feedback from students on every unit including the teaching and delivery of the unit. Students will have the opportunity to provide feedback on units on a regular basis. The on-line system guarantees that all feedback is anonymous and confidential.
We are grateful to all students who take the time to provide this online feedback.
The feedback on individual units and lecturers represents an important quality assurance mechanism enabling University staff to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of teaching and learning across the University.
Student Feedback on Learning and Teaching
Date conducted, and frequency
Each Semester / Trimester / Session since Semester 2, 2004.
|To gain feedback from students on their units. From mid 2009 also includes feedback on teaching in units.|
All students enrolled in coursework units in the relevant teaching session
All students are offered the opportunity to provide feedback via the online system.
Typically average 20% and 35% for each teaching period though individual units may achieve response rates >50%.
The survey is conducted on-line with access for students via their MySCU account.
Staff access the Online Feedback website to complete customisation or download reports at http://study.scu.edu.au/teaching/ufq
The survey instrument is structured into two major components:
A) Seven compulsory Core Questions related to the unit -
Five assessor selected Optional Questions chosen from an on-line Question Bank of 73 other questions.
A second set of questions seeks feedback on teaching -
and up to 5 teacher selected questions from the Question Bank.
For each question students are asked to rank the response using a five point scale ranging from Strongly Disagree through to Strongly Agree. Students also have the opportunity to include comments for each question. A final question enables students to provide additional detailed commentary on ways in which the unit may be improved.
Availability of data/reports
Available online (or PQR)
Feedback reports for the current feedback period are locked until final grades are published on the web. After then Unit Assessors and individual teachers can access their own unit/teaching feedback reports at http://study.scu.edu.au/teaching/ufq.
Heads of Schools have access to all unit/teaching feedback reports for their respective schools.
Reports include a statistical breakdown of the response ratings for each question, a summary of responses by location and a full listing of the comments in relation to each question. Copies of these reports are also provided on request to the Head of School (for all units taught by the School), and are available to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor.
Further high level analysis is then undertaken on the aggregated data from the feedback session. The following summary reports (of core questions only) are produced and can be viewed on this website: Summary of ratings (%) for whole of University, Summary by School, Summary by Field of Education and Summary by Location.
