The guiding principles for evaluations are based on the university's quality cycle of Plan, Act, Evaluate (monitor and review) and Improve. Evaluation surveys ensure that the university's educational and administrative experience, and the units taught in coursework programs, are subject to regular and systematic evaluation and improvement.
The students' academic experience will be assessed by the Monash Experience Questionnaire (MEQ) on a biennial basis.
The students' experience of support and administration services will be evaluated through the Student Support Services Survey and the Student Administrative Survey. These surveys will be run on a biennial basis in alternate years.
Teaching and Units will be evaluated using the Student Evaluation of Teaching and Units (SETU). Each of the university's units will be evaluated at least once in each year that it is taught.
Survey results will be analysed and made available within three months of administration of the survey, and the relevant organisational units will use the data to guide improvements to academic and support services, and to academic units.
A central database will be maintained of survey results and reports of improvements made in response to student concerns.
