Also for the academic year 2017/18 the University of Siena has set up a procedure to monitor the students’ opinions about courses via the use of ANONYMOUS ON-LINE QUESTIONNAIRES.
This method allows students to have an easier response and a greater possibility of expressing their own opinion in order to play an active role in improving the quality of courses on offer.
The questionnaire is accessed from the on-line secretarial office, by clicking on "questionnaires" > "course activity evaluation questionnaires"
The questionnaire icon is NOT visible from the “student's on-line record book” area
All the students ATTENDING or WHO HAVE ATTENDED LESSONS IN THE FIRST SEMESTER will be invited to fill out the questionnaires in the week 11-17 DECEMBER 2017.
WARNING: for reasons connected with course organisation or approval of study plans, some courses may bring forward or postpone the start of evaluation; in this case, the new dates will be announced by teachers during lessons and published on the Department websites (stated in the PDF).
It is possible to complete evaluation from any computer up to 4 March. To encourage Evaluation week (dedicated to 1st semester courses), from Monday 11 to Friday 17 December, a dedicated phone line (0577/235409)will be available to students, open from 10am to 1pm.
