Detailed principles for an evaluation by questionnaire

These points complement the general principles for successful evaluation.

1. Planning

We suggest that you give 10-15 minutes to your students during class to fill in the questionnaire. Thus, try to find the most suitable time to plan this sending (see point 4 for timeframe). This will prevent the students from being overloaded and help achieve high response rates.

2. Preparing

Choose the tool – connection to the online platform - customization

There are different templates available, with or without a block of questions concerning online teaching and distance learning. All basic templates are available on the evaluation platform as well as in PDF format below (as an example only). Questions on the perception of being included in a teaching can also be added to any questionnaire when you submit your request on the platform. 

If you would like to modify or create a brand new questionnaire adapted to your specific needs, contact us !

3. Informing

Why – When – How

In order to obtain a satisfying response rate, we recommend to communicate about this survey with your students. You may inform them of this process beforehand, explaining them the utility of the evaluation to you, as well as the ways and means that are used (see next item).

4. Waiting 

Sending -> +3 days reminder 1 -> +3 days reminder 2 -> +3 days closure -> min. 5 days receipt of the results / meeting

Each student will receive an e-mail from to their institutional address at a time of your choosing. This e-mail contains a unique link to access the online questionnaire. Their responses are anonymous. All results will be sent to you after anonymisation, apart from comments about the person instead of the teaching.

In order to give all students enough time, we suggest that you leave the questionnaire open for about 10 days. A reminder or two can also be sent automatically to those who have not responded in the meantime a few days later. An indicative schedule is provided on the platform. The various deadlines can of course be extended or shortened, depending on the schedule you have drawn up beforehand.

Responses to the online questionnaires are automatically forwarded to the CSE.
The results are compiled, analysed and sent to you by e-mail within 5 working days after the closing date of the questionnaire (more if a summary is drawn up). Depending on demand and possible adjustments, the time taken to produce the results may be longer.

A confidential meeting session with the CSE is mandatory under Directive 3.22 when the average agreement to the different questions of an SET is less than 60% of the respondents. A contextualised evaluation report is written, summarising the elements discussed during the session. You are the only recipient of this document.


Time period 
→ Planning of your evaluation : minimum 5 working days before the date chosen for the assessment
→ Customisation of a tool : 3 additional working days
