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 February 2015 presentation of U316. The survey was carried out in 2015.

133 students (a response rate of 38.1%) 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: "The module team would like to thank all the students who took the time to take part in the survey. The module is wide-ranging, with internet and practical elements, group work and basic mathematical skills all essential components. Respondents emphasise that substantial time and organisation is imperative to master this breadth of material, but end-of-module responses normally show that the great majority are ultimately satisfied with the materials and with their overall learning experience, in particular the support from tutors. In response to an unusually challenging year in 2015, assessment in particular has been radically simplified for 2016."
