Section Section 2

The questions in Section 2 are optional. This section was designed to permit lecturers to ask module-specific questions if desired and to avail from the online system to gather some more developmental feedback. Lecturers are free to add up to six questions, either of their own design or from the provided item bank.

The item bank is based on standardised questions from established international SET tools, particularly the Module Experience Questionnaire. These items can be used to mirror and augment the core items to improve validity by extending beyond the single-item indicator approach.
