Sample Inputs

Student survey

Instructor survey

Introduction

This is a research conducted by the University of Melbourne to examine the implications of learning and teaching undergraduates in Australian universities. A set of parallel questionnaires was used as part of the investigation to gather feedback from both the students and instructor on their experiences with technology.

What are the main features?

The key characteristics of this tool include:
  • A 4-page questionnaire administered on paper.
  • The focus areas are: (1) access to technology, (2) perception on effectiveness of learning technologies used in the university, (3) technology usage pattern, (4) perception on student achievement, and (5) learning technologies used in the university.

How do I implement it?

The parallel survey is administered on paper and is available under Creative Commons license (attribution-non-commercial-no derivative).

What does it measure?

Some of the sample questions in the survey are listed as follow:
  • Perception on effectiveness of learning technologies used in the university:
    • On a scale from 1-5, with 1 being strongly disagree and 5 being strongly agree, I want students to use technology in their studies because it will help them get better results in their subjects.
    • On a scale from 1-5, with 1 being strongly disagree and 5 being strongly agree, I want students to use technology in their studies because it will improve their IT/information management skills in general.
  • Technology usage pattern:
    • How often and how skilled are you in using a computer to manage or manipulate digital photos (e.g. using iPhoto, Dig. Image)?
    • How often and how skilled are you in using the web to publish podcasts (e.g. using Podifier, Podcaster, PodProducer)?
