This week has seen the launch of the National Student Survey (NSS) at RAU. The NSS “gathers opinions from students about their time in higher education, asking them to provide honest feedback on what it has been like to study on their course at their university/college“. There are 27 questions relating to eight aspects of the student experience and the survey is for students in their last year of study. The NSS is run by Ipsos MORI.
SSS and Survey checker
Internally we are giving students who aren’t eligible for the NSS the opportunity to complete our own version of the survey called the Student Satisfaction Survey (SSS). The survey has been created in Jisc’s Online Surveys. – which we are increasingly using for student surveys.
Student are often unsure on which survey they should fill in. To help point them in the right direction we have created and internal survey checker. The checker is available from Gateway (our VLE) and through myRAU. Big thanks to Danny in IT for his work on this.
To support the surveys we also have a page on Gateway with information about the various surveys we run throughout the year. This page contains general You Said, We Did information, also up on our display screens. There is also a generic email address for survey queries.
Fingers crossed for a good response rate!
