Abstract

Benefits of collecting student feedback on courses, programs, learning experiences, and their perceptions of teaching quality, are well documented in literature. In the higher education system, this feedback is generally collected via student evaluation surveys. During the past few years, the Faculty of Engineering and Surveying (FoES), one of five faculties at USQ, has identified problems of small response rates, possible bias, general questions over data validity, relevance and wording of survey questions, and systems problems such as timeliness of official reports. Due to these problems, the data may not be reliable and the views of those who respond may not be representative of the overall student cohort. It is therefore risky to base management decisions on student satisfaction, teaching quality, and course quality on these data.
Clearly, a more robust and reliable method of gathering feedback from students was needed that would provide more confidence in the data. For various reasons it was considered that structured student focus groups might provide such a vehicle.
