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.
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.
