Student Module Evaluation

Introduction to Student Module Evaluation (SME)

The SME recently transferred from an online evaluation to a paper evaluation. This is your opportunity as a student to feed back on taught modules in a simple and confidential way.

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

The SME has been designed to record constructive feedback.

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
  • 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?

The SME is now a paper-based evaluation, which will be administered by Module Leaders at the start or end of a taught lecture.
