Course evaluation

Why evaluate?

Your feedback is a cornerstone in evaluations of courses. Evaluation is your chance to influence aspects of courses that matter to you. Teachers go carefully through your feedback and use it to adjust courses. Future students attending the course will also benefit from your feedback, so the impact of your participation in the evaluation reaches far beyond your own course.

How do I evaluate courses?

The course evaluation process looks like this:

Course evaluation process

  1. The early evaluation takes place in class at the beginning of the course.
  2. The online survey is open for participation during week 49 (autumn semester) and week 19 (spring semester). The survey supplements the final evaluation and participation is anonymous. You access the survey via the course pages in LearnIT. 
  3. The final evaluation takes place in class during the last week of teaching.

Student survey questions

The online questionnaire contains four questions and a comment box:

Please state your agreement with the following statements from 1 (strongly disagree) to 6 (strongly agree).

  1. Overall, I benefited from the course.
  2. The course was organized in a way that helped me learn.
  3. Teacher A-Z: The teacher’s teaching aided my learning.
  4. Teacher A-Z: The teacher contributed to an inclusive learning environment.

Comment box: Please give feedback on the course and your learning experience. Thank you for keeping a civil tone.

Anonymity

Students are anonymous when you:
