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 October 2015 presentation of S396. The survey was carried out in 2016.

78 students (a response rate of 32.9%) 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.

Faculty comment: "The module team would like to thank the students who took the time to complete the survey. This module features a diverse mix of text and online sources, models and practical work, with statistics an essential component. This diversity reflects the challenges of understanding real-world ecosystems and makes for challenging but potentially rewarding study. End-of-module responses show the great majority of respondents are satisfied with the overall experience, the materials and the support provided. Additional module-wide online tutorials on key topics, introduced this year, have been well-received."
