Module Evaluation Surveys
Edinburgh Napier University conducts module evaluation surveys online with its students. The University’s Planning & Business Intelligence (P&BI) team will set up the surveys for Module Leaders (MLs) each trimester, but software we use allows MLs more control of the process. This software is known as EvaMetrics and MLs can log on to it using their staff number and password. From there MLs can see their module evaluations surveys. This link is also available in Quick Links on the staff intranet under Module Evaluation Engagement Portal (EvaMetrics).
What is the default evaluation period?
P&BI sets up default dates for the surveys to open at the end of Week 11 and close at the end of Week 14.
How do Module Leaders change the dates of their module evaluation surveys?
Using EvaMetrics, MLs can bring forward the opening and/or closing dates. If you are a ML and want the survey to open and/or close later than the default date, you should contact ModuleEvaluation@napier.ac.uk.
Which modules are included?
The modules which are included are those taught by Edinburgh Napier which are wholly or partly theory modules, dissertations or major projects and work-based learning modules. Placement modules will be included shortly. Other modules are included on request including those taught by partner agencies.
Module evaluation surveys are a part of the feedback process
Please note there is also an option to use Touchpoint surveys prior to the module evaluation surveys. Please see Touchpoint information for staff.
What does EvaMetrics allow Module Leaders to do?
As well as allowing MLs to open and close surveys earlier than the default dates, MLs can send reminders to students to help to increase the response rate, see response rates and view student feedback once there are at least three respondents. MLs can also use the Closing the Loop option in EvaMetrics to feedback to students.
What if I cannot see my module in EvaMetrics?
P&BI extract module information from SITS and it is essential that Schools ensure the information is correct, including who the current Module Leader is.
