The Proposed Student Feedback Questionnaire (2000)

The purpose of this feedback questionnaire is to gather information on your learning experience, as well as your responses to the course and the teacher(s). Please think of these questions as eliciting your subjective perceptions on various aspects of the course and the teachers involved in the course. The information you provide will be useful to your teachers as well as to the University in the ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of education at NUS. The data you provide will be treated as confidential.

The feedback consists of two parts: Part I covers your response to the teachers (lecturers, seminar facilitators, tutors and instructors) of the course, while Part II covers your response to the course as a whole. For each individual teacher, you should fill a separate form under Part I.
