Pullen, D and Collette, S and F, J, Post-graduate student grades and unit evaluation: is there a relationship between student unit feedback and their final unit grade?, Proceedings of the 2017 Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE) Conference, 26-30 November 2017, Canberra, Australia, pp. 1-20. (2017) [Non Refereed Conference Paper]
n September 2012, the University of Tasmania transitioned to a fully online internal student evaluation system. Following this change, teaching staff have repeatedly expressed concern regarding the calibre of students choosing to participate in Unit Surveys. A common assumption was that only students who have achieved either very high, or very low, final grades choose to provide feedback, while students who receive a pass/credit provide little to no feedback, leading to survey bias.
This presentation will discuss the methodology and preliminary findings of a pilot project to map student unit evaluation survey responses against their GPA. Data gathered will inform a larger university-wide analysis of survey responses and further data mining capabilities.
