Module Evaluation


Module Evaluation for Students

A key element of module evaluation is the value that Leeds Beckett University places on your honest and constructive feedback. Academic staff ask students to complete an online module evaluation form. The link to the online module evaluation is sent by email to your University email address and can also be accessed through your ‘My Module Evaluation’ link, which is in every module menu in MyBeckett. 

Developments for 2017/18 Module Evaluation

The University’s approach to module evaluation during 2017/18 has been developed to strengthen earlier feedback from students in-year, which can be used to inform in-year module improvements and responses to students. The main change of direction will be the adoption of a very short questionnaire, common to all modules, split into two, so as to focus on different aspects of module experience.

(a) All surveys will be conducted electronically. (b) Surveys will be split into two sections, to evaluate the module during the teaching of the module, and after the completion of the module and assessment and feedback: i. A short survey conducted at a mid-point in the module (e.g. typically four-questions in teaching week 8) which focuses on feedback relating to engagement, intellectual challenge and preparation for assessment. ii. A short survey conducted at the end of the module (e.g. typically four-question survey in teaching week 15) which focuses on assessment and feedback and module organisation.

Through Module Evaluation, we aim to:

  • Gather feedback from students on their experience of the modules on their course

  • Identify examples of excellent practice.

  • Identify areas for improvement

The results of the survey can be accessed by the Module Leaders, Course Directors, and Heads of Subject. They are then discussed at School and Institutional level.  The evaluations form a crucial means of highlighting excellent practice and maintaining teaching standards across Leeds Beckett’s curriculum.

Module evaluation is completed anonymously.
