Course Evaluation Responses

Just exactly what did you think of the course? Did everyone else think the same?

This page summarises the responses from the course evaluation questionnaires which where handed out on the last lecture, December 1998. This was not only the last lecture of the course, but was also held on the last day of term, at 11am when most students were being evicted from colleges in the afternoon - the turnout, as you can imagine, was not representative of a normal week :-)

There were 22 questionnaires returned, any questions which were not answered or left blank have been filled in as the middle value (Neutral in most cases). Some of the questions were not applicable to the course, so responses here varied greatly due to each person's interpretation. Question 5 is slightly ambiguous because the OHP and board were not used, all slides were displayed via the computer. Question 9 is not applicable, as there was no set course textbook.

Also listed beneath the question responses are overall course comments.
