Evaluation that informs Quality


Student Evaluation

  • Annual undergraduate module evaluation - administered at School/course office level. Schools have discretion to choose which type of evaluation best suits their needs and to design their own questions. Schools are required to report on the type of evaluation conducted for each module, how it communicated feedback to students and actions arising from the evaluation;
  • Annual postgraduate taught course evaluation - evaluated on two occasions using agreed on-line template questionnaires - at the end of the taught component and at the time of submission of the dissertation. Faculty Offices are responsible for administering these surveys and on alternate years Schools may use other forms of evaluation at a local level.
  • Trinity has developed a Procedure for the conduct of focus groups for student evaluation of modules and programmes. The Quality Office maintains a panel of trained focus group facilitators and notetakers. Schools and Disciplines can access the panel via the Quality.Officer@tcd.ie email.
  • Students surveys and focus groups are conducted as part of the programme review process.
  • Students are asked to participate in meetings with Quality Reviewers.

Staff Evaluation

Staff surveys and focus groups are administered during Programme Reviews as a method of obtaining feedback.
