The Student Experience Survey is distributed to students each year. It is the only opportunity we have to collect program-level data from our current students and so represents an important chance to supplement feedback from the SSCCs.
The 2018 SES has just closed. RMIT and SoEd response rates are summarised below:
|RMIT HE Total||38.4%|
|BP041 – B App Sci (Health and Physical Education)||74.8%|
|BP046 – B Ed (Bundoora)||46.2%|
|BP046 – B Ed (Brunswick)||53.4%|
|BP260 – B Ed (Early Child Education)||56.5%|
|GC044 – GC Careers Education and Development||42.2%|
|GD108 – GD Education (Early Childhood)||45.6%|
|MC219 – MTP (Primary Education)||55.7%|
|MC220 – MTP (Secondary Ed)||45.0%|
All of our HE programs exceeded the university average, with half of our programs achieving response rates over 50% and the others sitting close. Particularly impressive was the stellar response rate from HPE. I understand the remaining 25% of students were on placement, otherwise I am informed we would have had 100%!
Across RMIT VE responses (15.9%) were down on 2017, but you can see our programs fared well, with a particularly strong response rate from the C4 Ed Support students.
|RMIT VE Total||15.9%|
|C2084 – VCE Units 1 and 2||23.7%|
|C2085 – VCE UNITS 3 and 4||19.3%|
|C4349 – Cert IV in Education Support||67.9%|
In terms of HDR responses, 34% of our 32 students responded, exceeding the RMIT response rate of 28%.
My thanks to you all for the work you did to encourage students to provide feedback. We won’t receive the data until next year, but when it does come we can be assured it will be reliable!
