FAQs for students about the Teacher-assessment questionnaires

It is used to determine student' degree of satisfaction with aspects of the teaching activity carried out in class, and at the same time, contribute to improving the programme itself.

For graduate students and/or university students master.

Subject questionnaire asks about the structure and programming subject, material, contents, etc. Lecture performance evaluation questionnaires evaluates the activity of the lecturer in the classroom.

The survey is scheduled to take place at the end of the teaching period in each semester: in December for teaching in the first semester (semester-long subjects/groups), and in May for teaching in the second semester (semester-long-subjects/groups) and for year-long subjects/groups.

Annual subjects-group are selected in the second half.

Two criteria must be met:

Criterion 1: In order for a lecturer to be selected, he/she must have taught a minimum of 10 hours.

Criterion 2: The subject group for Theory must have received a minimum of 15 hours of teaching.

  1. A lecturer who meets criterion 1 and is the only one who teaches that subject group for Theory("Te") will be selected provided he/she has taught that group of students ofr a minimum of 15 hours.
  2. If a group is taught by two lecturers and both of these meet criterion 1, both of them will be selected, since the group will have received a total of 20 hours' teaching, thus meeting criterion 2.
  3. If a group is taught by two lecturers, and one of these has taught ten hours and the other only fivehours, the first one will be selected, having met criterion 1 and criterion 2 (the group will have received a total of 15 hours' teaching), but he second one will not be selected for the survey.

Within the selection of the survey those subjects/modules-group-teacher with the following teaching typology TE-Theory and that fulfill the rest of the requisites are included.

The survey is offered in Catalan, Spanish and English.

Students receive an email that tells them the time limit for responding and they get several reminders during the response period. the time limit for responding will also be published on the UAB website and the faculty websites.

Each survey is identified with the course name and code number, the group's code number and the full name of the lecturer who taught the subject. Before starting studentsare asked to confirm that they have been taught by that lecturer. If they say yes they are given access to the survey identified in the header.

Students know which lecturer they are evaluating because each survey is identified previouly with the course name and code number, the group's code number and the full name of the lecturer who taught the subject. If all the lecturers who taught the subject/group meet the conditions for evaluation, students can complete a survey for each lecturer who has taught them.

The results are sent to the different university stakeholders:
The university's Executive Governing Body: Global report
Teaching centres (Deans/Directors): Global report
Departments: Global report and department report
Degree subject: Global report and degree subject report
Academic management Service of each centre: Report on the process
Lecturers evaluated: Indiviual report (intranet and Sigm@-CDS / Manual d'accés)
Faculty of Medicine Teaching Units: Teaching Unit report
Students: Results of class groups at faculties and other centres, available for consultation in paper format in the libraries

On beginning to complete a survey, if you click on "Save" you can still modify your answers within the time allowed, but if you click on "Finalize" you can make no modifications, the survey is closed and it disappears from the list of pending suveys, whether or not you have replied to all the questions.
Replies to survey questions that have been saved but not ended are not taken into account when the reply period is closed.

Replies cannot be erased after clicking on "Finalize". This is only possible if you have clicked on "Save".

The subject/group may have been left out of the selection because it did not meet the evaluation conditions, and the programme does not display it for this reason.

The surveys are anonymous and confidentiality is guaranteed.  Students must identify themselves to be able to take surveys on the subjects/groups they are enrolled on. After completing the survey, when the student clicks on "Finalize", the replies are disassociated from the student's identity details. From this point, it is not possible to link the survey replies to the student who gave them.
