Information gathering: future demand for online exams and in course tests

The eAssessment and Feedback Steering Group are currently gathering information about potential demand for online exams and in course tests in the next 5 years.

We are asking all colleagues who are interested in introducing a new online exam (whether for a new module, or a change to assessment method in a current module) to complete a short online form for each potential new exam.

The information collected will be used to gauge demand and assist in planning future provision.

Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey 2018

We will shortly be launching this year’s Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES).  PTES will open on Monday 16 April and run until Friday 15 June.

PTES is the only national survey of postgraduate taught students’ experience of learning and teaching.  The results will allow you to compare students’ experience of postgraduate programmes both internally and against the groups of institutions so to make changes that better meet their future needs.

The survey is also an opportunity for students to voice their opinion and to be partners in developing the postgraduate learning experience.  Information gathered helps us to demonstrate the quality of taught postgraduate degree programmes and show commitment to postgraduate education.

Please do all that you can to promote it.  The more students that take part the better the picture we will get of the taught postgraduate experience at Newcastle.
