Why I complete unit evaluations

Unit evaluations are conducted by the University each term. A simple survey available via Moodle, these evaluations collect feedback that is then used to monitor and improve teaching practices.

To complete the survey, look for the red button in your online Moodle unit.

It’s a busy time, but submitting an evaluation is worth it. Here’s why…

1# It only takes five minutes

Completing a unit evaluation is easy. It’s a star rating system, with the option to provide additional comments, if you want to.

I can usually complete all my evaluations for a term in under five minutes.


2# Providing feedback is important and anonymous

This is an easy one. If you want to commend a coordinator, highlight an issue, or simply make a suggestion, completing a unit evaluation is the best way to do this.

All feedback is anonymous, so don’t be afraid to be honest.


Evaluations for Term 1 2019 open on Monday, 13 May. Complete your unit evaluations in Moodle to have your say.

  2. Am very pleased to have done the steps program. It has given me the confidence to continue study. Bring on Term 2

  3. Just wondered why we never get any feedback when we give feedback. It would be nice to know what other students felt about the course as well. I see a few feedback comments on Moodle but they never have dates so it’s impossible to tell when that feedback was given.

    1. Hi Helen,

      Thanks for your comment. You raise a very valid point, and we’re currently looking into ways to improve this aspect of the evaluations in future.
      At the moment, changes to units made as a result of student feedback are available in the unit profile. The units are reviewed annually as part of the university’s governance process and student feedback is a crucial component of this review.

  4. Till now, everything is good here. Some teachers are good but some of them are really don’t know. Being a international students i have lots of expectation from teachers. It will be also better if CQU have good communication skill teachers.
