Faculty comment: "We start by noting that the small size of the module cohort meant a response rate of only 23 participants, and this means the statistics need to be read with care, since each individual’s views comprises more than 4% of the total, and the number of responses only just qualifies for the key data to be analysed. However, the responses seem in line with the student feedback from comparable MA modules within the faculty. We are pleased that satisfaction levels were high overall, and particularly glad at the high scores for enjoyment of the module and for tutor support. We note that where the module scored less highly was on quality of teaching materials and value for money. We suspect that the two may be linked. Since this is a dissertation module, students do not receive teaching materials because they are expected to conduct independent research. It may be that students who have studied other OU modules and are used to receiving large amounts of materials find this slightly disappointing; however, this is inherent to the aims of this module."
