How Can A Student Satisfaction Survey Be Useful?

With the higher education sector becoming an increasingly competitive market, student satisfaction has become an important component of quality assurance. High student satisfaction helps in attracting and retaining high achievers who in turn increase the reputation and standing of the institution.

This Survey Can Be Useful In Many Ways:

1) To Get An Understanding Of The Students/Customers : 

Do you want to know what your students think of the curriculum? Or would you like to know about their opinions on pedagogy? Create your survey with a clear idea of the information you are trying to collect. 

2) Facilities :

Facilities form the backbone of your institution. Ask your students what they think about the facilities you are offering.

3) Quality Of Education :

A survey on the quality of pedagogy can help you improve the quality of education at your institution. This factor includes curriculum, techniques used, and testing methods. Ask your students how they view what they are taught, how they are taught, and how satisfied are they with the same.

4) Environment :

The environment refers to the interpersonal communication that forms a student’s life in the university. Your questions can discuss the topics of discrimination, bullying, and even tute groups. This will impact their satisfaction level and give you a clear picture of the social milieu at your institution.

Best Practices For Creating A Student Satisfaction Survey :

3)Add Social Share Widgets: Adding social share icons on your survey’s last page increases the chances of it going viral, more people taking the survey and hence higher rates of conversions.

4) Ask For a Recommendation: On the lead gen form, you can ask users to recommend the survey to someone who may benefit from it. This increases the chances of your interactive experience gaining more traction through word-of-mouth.
