The Student Module Evaluation (SME) is a University wide survey that enables your students to provide constructive feedback on the design and delivery of the modules they are taking.   

If you are the main Module Leader with overall responsibility for a module, you will have access to the SME Blackboard dashboard. The dashboard will display the following information:  

Modules codes and titles for each module you are responsible for. 

  • Each evaluation start and end date.  

  • A current response rate score. 

  • A final response rate score once the evaluation closes. 

  • Access to a PDF report (quantitative & qualitative data) immediately after the evaluation ends. 

  • Access to historical module reports
