The questionnaire asks students to indicate their level of agreement with a series of 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 long will it take to complete the evaluation?

Approximately five to eight minutes. It will take a little longer if you chose to include comments at the end of each section.

How do I take part?

You will be asked to complete one paper evaluation for each module that you are taking. Each paper evaluation will be handed out and collected by your Module Leader at the beginning or end of your lecture. 

Is my feedback confidential?

You will be asked to provide your course code for each module you are taking. Your Module Leader will have details of all the courses associated with your module(s).

If you are unable to provide your course code, you will be asked for your student id. Please be assured your id will only be used to ensure that module feedback is attributed to the correct course code. At no point will individual student ids be used for reporting purposes or disclosed to Module Leaders.
