A lot of people put a lot of work into making StudentSurvey.ie and PGR StudentSurvey.ie happen! This collection of resources is meant as a help to the staff and student representatives in all of the participating higher education institutions, as well as organisations like the HEA, IUA, THEA, USI, QQI, NStEP and the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, who all contribute to this national AND local effort. 

Each of the following sections link to pages on this website that contain resources, ideas, information and supports. Happy reading!

Re-designed "Tools to Support Analysis" page

Data analysis and fieldwork promotion go hand in hand. The greatest incentive for students to participate in StudentSurvey.ie or PGR StudentSurvey.ie is for them to see that staff value the feedback given and seek to make use of the results. This requires varying degrees of data analysis. 

The "Tools to Support Analysis" page now contains sections like tools to support analysis, instructional videos and good practice in the participating institutions
