abstract

  • Quality control mechanisms are becoming more important in higher educational institutions. Student evaluation of teaching is typically used to obtain feedback from students about a learning experience but its effect in the course may take too long. Fast feedback mechanisms, in exchange, look at obtaining feedback in a way that corrective measures can be applied quickly. In this paper, a process is described to obtain feedback from the students about a course, analyse the received results, and identify the most significant aspects. The process has been applied to a course and led to some adjustments that had immediate impact on the course.
