The following feedback mechanisms are also available to UQ teaching staff.

Open Response Questionnaire

The Open Response Questionnaire is a tool used to gather formative feedback. It is ideal for use when the requirements for a SECaT or SETutor evaluation are not met (e.g. for guest lecturers, or if the class size is less than six).

The Open Response Questionnaire consists of five open-ended questions: two relating to the teaching, and three relating to the course.

Unlike the SECaT and SETutor, completed Open Response Questionnaires are not reported via formal mechanisms (UQ Reportal). Academics may use the completed Open Response Questionnaire for their own personal feedback only. This survey is confidential and personal information will only be accessible by the Evaluations team. Responses will be forwarded to the course coordinator after the finalisation of grades each semester by the Evaluations team.
