In the 1980s, feedback from students about their experience in higher education was a rarity. With the expansion of the university sector, the concerns with quality and the growing â€˜consumerismâ€™ of higher education there has been a significant growth of, and sophistication in, process designed to collect views from students.
Most higher education institutions, around the world, collect some type of feedback from students about their experience of higher education. â€˜Feedbackâ€™ in this sense refers to the expressed opinions of students about the service they receive as students. This may
include perceptions about the learning and teaching, the learning support facilities (such as, libraries, computing facilities), the learning environment, (lecture rooms, laboratories, social space and university buildings), support facilities (refectories, student accommodation, health facilities, student services) and external aspects of being a student (such as finance, transport infrastructure).
Student views are usually collected in form of satisfactionâ€™ feedback. Sometimes there
are specific attempts to obtain student views on how to improve specific aspects of provision or on their views about potential or intended future developments but this is less usual.
Ironically, although feedback from students is assiduously collected in many institutions, it is less clear that it is used to its full potential. Feedback from students has two main functions:
Â· internal information to guide improvement;
Â· external information for potential students and other stakeholders.
