Why have a module and examination survey?

The online survey on modules and module examinations, made with EvaSys, aims to ensure the quality goals "assurance of study-feasibility" and "skill-oriented education."

The module and examination survey was developed in an inter-faculty working group with students, academic staff, and professors.

What's the survey's content?

Module-Related Content

  • Organization of modules, coordination of individual module elements
  • Attainment of learning objectives, deep understanding of acquired knowledge
  • Workload
  • Satisfaction

Exam-Related Content

  • Clarity of examination requirements, examination organization
  • Examination preparation
  • Clarity of problems and exercises, exam appropriateness

Who can participate in the survey and how?

All modules of the courses of study that begin in a given winter semester with the course of study evaluation are considered over the course of an entire academic year (summer semester and winter semester).

If an exam date has been entered in the examination system, exam takers and students, who withdrew from the exam at the last minute – illness, absence, failure to complete exam –  will be invited via email to take the module and examination survey one day after the module examination.

Surveys about the modules and the module examinations without an exam date in the examination system will be held at the end of the examination period of the respective semester.

A module and examination survey is open for two weeks once the invitation is sent.

What will happen with the results?

The survey evaluations will be sent to the person responsible for the module as well as to the dean of studies. We are in the process of making the survey results available to students and student representative councils as part of our transition to RWTHonline.

The results of selected survey questions furthermore serve as base data for the course of study evaluation.
