Through Module Evaluation, we aim to:

All student feedback from module evaluations are reviewed by the Module Leader, Course Director and your Head of Subject. The Module Leader/Tutors may discuss the mid-point survey with you and any suggested improvements in response the feedback received. They are asked to give full consideration to all survey findings and produce an action plan to address any issues that students have identified.

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 contribute to module evaluation, either online, by discussion or by the completion of a paper module evaluation form.
Schools will determine their approach to Module Evaluation as per section 13.6.3 of the Academic Regulations
Module Evaluation Surveys
The following guidelines are provided for Schools when running a module evaluation survey:
Module Surveys require a standard set of core questions approved by the University Academic Quality and Standards Committee (AQSC)
Allocating time during lectures and or seminars can improve survey responses
Schools can use the MyBeckett Enterprise Survey tool to collect and collate evaluations
Schools can use paper-based surveys administered and collated by School support staff and/or student representatives
The medium used to undertake module evaluation is to be determined by the School
Module feedback should be considered by the staff teaching on the module, the Module Leader and the Course Director and Course Leader (where applicable).
