Module Evaluation

The University’s Learning and Teaching Strategy sets out our commitment to provide all students with an outstanding higher education experience. Module evaluation is central to this, providing data on the effectiveness of our teaching, for our students.

One way to evaluate modules is to use a Module Evaluation Questionnaire (MEQ).  In December 2018, the Education and Student Experience Committee approved a new MEQ, to be used across our Institution.  The MEQ was developed through an in-depth, four-stage, mixed-method research study, conducted by Dr Susan Kenyon.  The study received full ethical approval.  It involved students, academics and professional services colleagues from all Faculties and Levels, including Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught.  Information about this research is available via the link on the right-hand menu. 

The approved MEQ is comprised of seven core questions: firstly, three qualitative questions, which allow open-text responses; followed by four quantitative questions, which use a 5-point Likert scale. 

The questionnaire can be easily released to students via Jisc Online Surveys, Microsoft Forms, or Mentimeter. Please note, support for Online Surveys and Microsoft Forms is provided by IT, whereas support for Mentimeter is provided by the TEL Team.

A ready-to-use questionnaire is available to download via the right hand menu, alternatively you can use the prepopulated templates below:


  1. Download the questionnaire template.
  2. Go to Jisc Online Surveys and choose ‘import a survey’ from the menu bar (please note, if this is the first time you’ve used Jisc Online Surveys you must request an account first).
  3. Select the questionnaire template downloaded in step 1 and click ‘import’.
  4. The imported survey will appear under Your Surveys; hover over the survey and choose ‘distribute’.
  5. Adjust the open and close dates accordingly, copy (or make a note of) the survey URL and click ‘launch survey’.
  6. The survey URL can be added as a hyperlink within your Blackboard module(s) or emailed directly to students.
  7. To check or collate responses, go to the analysis tab within the Jisc Online Surveys dashboard.
  1. Access the Microsoft Forms prepopulated template.
  2. Click ‘duplicate it’ at the top of the page.
  3. Click in the title of the questionnaire to rename it (e.g., U00001 Module Evaluation Questionnaire)
  4. When you’re ready to share, click ‘collect responses’ in the top right corner and copy the questionnaire URL. The questionnaire URL can be added as a hyperlink within your Blackboard module(s) or emailed directly to students.
  5. To keep response data separate between modules, we recommend creating a new questionnaire per module. To create a new questionnaire, repeat the above steps.
  6. To check and collate responses, access the Microsoft Forms homepage, choose the relevant questionnaire at the bottom of the page, and the click on the ‘responses’ tab.
