Student Module Evaluation

Introduction to Student Module Evaluation (SME)

The online module evaluation gives students the opportunity to feedback on their taught course modules in a simple, secure and confidential way, see the SME Privacy Statement.

The results of the evaluation will help your faculty to better understand your needs and expectations, and they also inform future module developments and enhancements.

The SME has been designed to record constructive feedback and all students must adhere to the University ICT Acceptable Use Policy and Procedures.

Who needs to complete the SME?

All undergraduate and taught postgraduate students will receive an email invitation to complete the online SME. You will be asked to complete an evaluation for each module before the module ends. The ten questions should take approximately three minutes to complete.

What topic areas are covered by the evaluation?

  • Teaching and academic support
  • Resources and learning environment
  • Assessment
  • Coursework feedback
  • Overall satisfaction

The evaluation asks students to indicate their level of agreement with 10 question statements using a five-point scale, in which 5 = definitely agree, 4 = mostly agree, 3 = neither agree or disagree, 2 = mostly disagree and 1 = definitely disagree. Qualitative feedback, although welcomed, is optional.

How can I access the SME?

There will be a link to the SME in the email you receive. Alternatively, while the SME is running, you can also access it by clicking on the My Module Evaluation graphic on your Blackboard dashboard.
