UU Student Barometer
The unit for Quality and Evaluation is conducting a survey targeting all first and second-cycle students throughout Uppsala University, the Student Barometer. The overall aim of the survey is to get a picture of the students’ perceptions of their learning and their study environment. The results can be used as one basis for continued work on the quality development of the University’s courses and programmes. More specifically to supplement course evaluations and constitute one of several basis for e.g. self-evaluation work in connection with reviews of study programmes within Uppsala University's own model. The questions in the survey have a specific focus on the conditions for student learning.Uppsala University´s Student Barometer os performed on the behalf of the Vice-Chancellor.
The results are presented in one report per program and subject (i.e. main field of study). In order for a particular programme/subject to receive their results separately, at least 10 students are required, due to integrity reasons.
Besides this, two University-wide reports are available; one report with descriptive results, and one report with more in-depth analyses in Swedish:
The questionnaire is designed by the unit for quality and evaluation at Uppsala University. The thematic set-up of the questions correspond to the eleven aspects set out in the guidelines for Uppsala University’s model for review of study programmes. When formulating the questions, existing evidence for creating good learning conditions has been taken into account. The questionnaire has been discussed in relevant forums, such as with representatives of disciplinary domains/faculties, study programme representatives (faculty programme directors, director of studies, programme coordinators, teacher representatives), the quality advisory board, student cooperation group, the student unions, the student health service and the Division for Quality Enhancement.
In 2018, the survey was sent to a bit more than 32 000 students, and 9083 persons (28 %) responded.
