Survey Live: 8 February - 28 February 2021
Each participating institution selects a specific three-week period during February and March to open the survey for their students. This allows the national survey to take account of local events and other demands on students’ time in order to increase the benefit of the survey at local level – “national survey, local impact“.

Most impactful use of the survey data for DkIT
Student support is a priority for us at DkIT and we are committed to enhancing it. The StudentSurvey.ie results are one of a number of sources of evidence informing an ongoing project, ‘The Gateway to Success’, funded through the HEA’s 2018 Innovation & Transformation Fund, that seeks to use digital technologies to make student support more flexible and accessible.
StudentSurvey.ie is one of a number of sources of information that is used to inform practice and policy. An example of this is the development of DkIT’s Framework and Guidelines for Assessed Group Work.
Feedback from StudentSurvey.ie and other sources consistently highlighted assessed group work as both a positive and negative feature. In response, the Learning and Teaching sub-committee of Academic Council was tasked with responding to this.
Following a review of the literature and extensive consultation with staff and students, a framework and guidelines for assessed group work were developed and approved by Academic Council in December 2016. Click here to download.
This has raised awareness of the issues and promoted a programmatic approach. A report on the evaluation of the initial implementation is available here.
