At the University, surveys are organised at different levels and data are analysed by academic and non-academic departments of the University according to the nature of the surveys and the expected deadlines for the survey/s, presented in the APPENDIX is the organisational procedure for improving the quality of LSMU feedback studies.
Taking into account the students’ wishes to make the surveys attractive and easily accessible to each student, a short evaluation questionnaire for modules / subjects was prepared – the“Quality Thermometer”, which allows:
- as soon as the student answers the questions, see the overall evaluation of the module / subject;
- the lecturer can see the assessment “here and now” and assess which parts of the module implementation are the strongest, and where a more detailed analysis of the reasons is needed;
- fill out the form on a mobile device;
- submit suggestions in free form.
The questionnaire is available in the LSMUSIS system next to the subjects in the Student’s Study Book entitled “Evaluate”. Assessment can only be done once, and it is recommended to do so at the end of a specific module / subject.
