Best practice in surveys

Collecting feedback from student surveys is most successful when:

  • a survey has high-response rates
  • the questions are well-designed
  • the results are communicated to an appropriate audience
  • using a survey is the best method of capturing data
  • students are made aware of the results and the corresponding actions that will follow.

To make sure that surveys continue to be a effective method of gaining student feedback at the University, we have put in place a protocol for their use and have provided guidance on survey creation.
