Student Experience Surveys

A tailored, institution-specific, attribute-focused, student experience survey is a useful way to cross-check whether employability skills are embedded in the curriculum.

Such surveys focus on student leaning, rather than teacher performance, and ask students about thie attribute (skill, knowledge and competence) development as part of a wider survey of student experience.

(Use of limited generic surveys such as the National Student Survey in the UK are virtually useless for this purpose and can give misleding results)

Examples of student exterience surveys

The long-time and well established leader in this field was the Student Satisfaction Approach pioneered at University of Central England and subsequently used in many institutions in the UK and overseas.
