Course feedback

VAMK students are asked for feedback on all courses after the course has ended. The feedback is integrated into the Peppi system and links to the courses for which feedback can be given are displayed on the student’s desktop.

As a student who has completed the course, the student’s assessment of the quality of the course is important to the teacher!

The questions are:

  • Scale questions (scale 1-7)The learning objectives of the course were clear
  • The working methods used supported my learning
  • My participation in the course was active
  • The workload of the course was appropriate (please specify in the open answer if necessary)
  • The course had a strong link with working life
  •  Open:
    • What things work particularly well on the course?
    • How could the course be improved?
    • The course was very good and I can recommend it to others (1-7)
    • 1= strongly disagree ….. 7= strongly agree

At the end of the feedback period, the teacher will give feedback and the student will see the feedback given to the scale questions of the whole group, if they have answered the questions themselves.

Student Radar

Every year, we send a survey to students requesting feedback on their progress.

There are four questionnaires: for first, second, third and fourth year students, there are separate questions focusing on each stage of their studies. The feedback received is compiled into a report and the reports are discussed by the Quality Working Group and the Management Group and sent to the education and support services for information. The feedback is used to decide on measures to improve teaching and services. The action plan is discussed at the annual student and management team briefing.

Student feedback survey on the graduation phase of polytechnics (AVOP)

At VAMK, the student’s graduation process starts by completing the national student feedback survey (AVOP) in the VALO service.

This 101-question questionnaire surveys the whole experience of studying at a university of applied sciences. The feedback collected is an important part of the knowledge base for UAS development and improvement. In addition, the results have a national impact on the guidance and funding of UAS education, so the questionnaire is completed by all graduates of Finnish UAS.

The AVOP questionnaire was developed as a joint project of the Rectors’ Council of Universities of Applied Sciences Arene, the Finnish Students’ Association SAMOK, the Foundation for Research in Learning and Education (OTUS) and the Ministry of Education and Culture (OKM). Arene ry is responsible for the development of the questionnaire. Statistical reports derived from the results of the survey are openly available on the Education Administration’s statistical service Vipunen.
