Module satisfaction survey

The figures below are taken from a survey of students who sat the exam/completed the end-of-module assessment for the May 2016 presentation of M813. The survey was carried out in 2016.

18 students (a response rate of 22.2%) responded to the survey covering what they thought of 10 aspects of the module.

Please note that if the percentage of students who responded to this module survey is below 30% and/or the number of responses is below 23 it means that only a small proportion of students provided feedback and their views as shown here may not be fully representative of all students who studied the module.

See this page for the full text of questions and more information about the survey.

Faculty comment: "We're pleased the majority of students are satisfied with the quality of the module (83.3%). The perceived quality of the tutor support dropped marginally from its high of 100% last year, but this is expected. It's also pleasing that the module scores highly in all indicators, although value for money remains a concern (61%). However, perhaps correlated is that workload satisfaction has dropped, although without statistical analysis (which we do not have) it would be difficult to ascribe these changes to anything other than random variation given no changes on the module. The sample size of 22.2% is only marginally above the threshold and may affect the variance of the figures."
