Ensuring academic excellence through student feedback

Course survey feedback is a useful way to gather information about students’ course experiences.

USRIs consist of a quantitative survey (USRI) common across all faculties. Administered by the university, they also include a qualitative faculty or a department-specific survey that is more open-ended in question design.

Student ratings of instruction contribute to ensuring academic excellence in the university's curriculum by allowing students to provide direct feedback to instructors.
