									                    MODULE EVALUATION : QUESTION BANK

Please note:

   The questions below are a resource for Sections C and D of the module questionnaire, and
    are grouped according to the main areas covered in the module monitoring form.
   Tutors are free to select and amend items as appropriate to their teaching context, and/or to
    devise questions of their own.
   In Section C, there should be at least one item/question on each main area.
   The overall number of items/questions should take into account the time available for filling in
    the questionnaire and the conditions under which it is being completed.
   Some items are written in the form of questions (plus ratings options), while others are framed
    as statements (with which students would agree/disagree).
   When creating your own questions, remember it is best to ask (1) only one thing at a time, and
    (2) only questions about which it is possible to do something about the responses.
