Continuous Improvement Reports
Studentsurvey.ie - the Irish Survey of Student Engagement
StudentSurvey.ie is for first year and final year undergraduate and taught postgraduate students. It runs each year in February and March for a three-week fieldwork period that is specific to each institution. The first survey was carried out in 2013 and has run every spring since then.
The findings of the Annual Student Survey of UG and PGT students are reported to the Quality Committee by the Quality Office, and the outcomes are customised to programme level for Schools. Requests for customised data and reports can be directed to the Quality Office via firstname.lastname@example.org . Annual School reports are disseminated from the Quality Office to all Schools and can be obtained from the relevant Director of Teaching & Learning.
A related survey for postgraduate research students (Research Masters and PhD) also runs every second year during February and March for a three-week fieldwork period that is also specific to each institution. The PGR Student.survey.ie for 2018/19 is now available to access, along with the pilot report for 2017/18
In October 2018 the Quality Office launched a new Central Quality Folder where staff with the required permissions in Schools can access School and Programme-level data from the Studentsurvey.ie
New Entrant Progression and Retention Report
Every year a report on NEW ENTRANT progression and retention is produced for the Senior Lecturer's Annual Report. This report focuses on students who, having enrolled in their first Higher Education Programme at Trinity, successfully progress from Junior Freshman (Year 1) to Senior Freshman (Year 2). This data helps Trinity to assess whether it is achieving its target of improving rates of undergraduate transition from first to second year courses to 90% by 2019, as outlined in the Trinity Strategic Plan 2014-2019 (Goal A1.1 Access and Participation).
