The Student Evaluation of Unit (SEU) and Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) are the major internal University surveys that give you the opportunity to rate your experience with teaching practices and tell us about your experience learning the unit. We appreciate feedback that is designed to improve learners’ performance and achievement, and teaching practices.

When completing the surveys, please refer to our guidelines for providing useful feedback.

Make sure your feedback is:

  • Goal-directed: Provide a clear explanation of what is expected or required.
  • Timely: Give feedback while there is still time for the teachers to act on it and to monitor and adjust their teaching. 
  • Behaviour-focused: Behaviour-focused: Rather than focusing on personality, feedback should reference teaching practices during the unit and allow scope for change.
  • Positive and encouraging: Balance suggestions for improvement with strengths you have observed and what the teacher/unit did well. Encourage improvement with practical and specific suggestions.
  • Change focused: Suggest strategies to maintain strengths and improve weaknesses; take a problem-solving approach that highlights the consequences both positive and negative of particular behaviours or actions.
  • Encouraging of reflection: Limit your feedback to what teaching staff can reasonably accept and action; consider the context of the errors you've observed.
  • Accepting of errors as part of learning: Let teachers know when there's been a misunderstanding and recognise this is a normal part of moving towards greater understanding and success.
  • Respectful: Be mindful of acceptable boundaries; respect confidentiality; and use language that is non-judgemental. Provide your feedback in a relaxed, mutually agreed setting.
  • Verified: Check that the college and teaching staff have understood the intention and meaning of your feedback.
  • Documented: Note ongoing and specific observations, and key suggestions for improvement.
