Student Voice - EvaSys Module Evaluations

In November 2017, the University launched a revised approach to the design and delivery of module evaluations, supported by the implementation of the EvaSys online module evaluation system. The adoption of EvaSys is designed contribute to the delivery of an outstanding student and learning experience, in alignment with the Learning and Teaching Strategy, through informing the enhancement of learning and teaching across the University.

The module evaluation period for Semester 3, 2023/24, will launch on Monday 8th July 2024 and run until Sunday 21st July 2024.

As with previous evaluation periods, students should be encouraged to complete the survey online though email communication from module tutors, and in class. Students will be able to access their module evaluation surveys through email, via Blackboard and via the MyTU Student Portal.

In October 2023 via SLEC, the survey questions were updated to reflect the amended National Student Survey (NSS). The survey will consist of twelve short questions, plus a question asking if the student is studying on a formal Apprenticeship Course. The questions explore student experiences of each module, scored on a five-point scale. A free text box is also provided for additional comments. Students studying on-line modules will also receive survey questionnaires, with the wording below altered to reflect the different nature of their studies. The questions are as follows:

The timetable for the Semester 3 module evaluation cycle is as follows:

Module Evaluations open Monday 8th July (Early Morning)

Module Evaluations close Sunday 21st July (Late Evening)
Completion of Module Reflections starts Monday 22nd July
Module Reflections sent automatically to students Monday 12th August


Module Reflections and Module Review

When the surveys have closed, Module Leaders are asked to complete their “Module Reflections” for each of their modules. These are commentaries on the results of each survey, responding in part to the numbers, but also answering the questions “What went well?” and “Where could improvements be made?”. This period starts on Monday 22nd July.

Numerical results plus the Module Reflections for each module will be emailed automatically to all students studying that module on Monday 12th August.

Module Leaders are also asked to complete the “Module Review” for each of their modules. Similar to the Reflections, these are staff facing comments emailed to the Course Leader which will ultimately form part of the Course Journal.

We have produced some detailed guidance aimed at module leaders around how to complete Reflections and Reviews to best effect, as well as how to engage your students in the whole survey process.
