Subject Experience Survey: Semester 1 update

The Semester 1 Subject Experience Survey opened on Monday 18 May and closed 3 June 2018. The overall response rate for the university was 45.23% - a 2.11% increase compared to Semester 1, 2017 (43.12%) and a 9.21% increase compared to Semester 2, 2017 (36.02%). We would like to thank those lecturers who made a concerted effort to encourage their students in filling out the SES this semester.
Various additional strategies were used to help boost Semester 1 response rates this year including iPad stations set up in high student traffic areas to encourage students to complete the SES.

SES posters were also displayed at key locations across the Parkville campus.

These strategies for improving the SES response rate will be evaluated with more initiatives planned for semester 2.


Learning Environments also changed the Terms and Conditions of the possible prize available for students who complete their SES response. Rather than offering two cash prizes of $500 each, the $1000 prize pool will now be offered as 10 x $100 Coles/Myer gift cards. This decision was made with a view to allowing more students the opportunity to win a prize.

The Semester 2, 2018 SES period will run from Monday 8 October to Sunday 28 October. Staff are encouraged to view the SES promotion webpage to help boost response rates.
