Evaluation of teaching

At FH Münster, both online and paper-based questionnaires can be used to evaluate courses quantitatively.

  • In the case of qualitative methods, students are asked to assess a course according to specific criteria, without intending to achieve quantitative evaluation or the comparability of results. Here the focus is on identifying suggestions for the further development of the course, one example being the internationally widespread Teaching Analysis Poll (TAP), a qualitative method of evaluation.

University-wide surveys

From the induction period to transition to the world of work: the evaluation results of our university-wide surveys provide us with valuable insights into experiences at university, and shed light on the different phases of the student life cycle. We conduct the following surveys:

  • Second-semester survey: the aim of the second-semester survey is to systematically improve access to FH Münster and the range of advisory and support services offered when students start university. This survey is conducted annually in the summer semester.
  • Degree completion survey: immediately after completing their degrees, all graduates are asked to provide a retrospective assessment of their study programme and its academic feasibility. The results are prepared and used to identify measures to improve academic programmes and teaching.
  • Survey of graduates: graduates of FH Münster are asked to complete an online questionnaire 12 to 18 months after completing their programme. The study on the whereabouts of graduates involves providing a retrospective assessment of the skills acquired on the programme, based on the graduates' initial work experience, as well as determining their employment situation.
  • External student surveys: the quality of academic programmes and teaching is not only evaluated within the FH Münster, but also in the context of external surveys.

External evaluation

External evaluation enables schools and departments to continuously share ideas and information with non-university experts on challenges specific to the department. The aim of external evaluation is to assess degree programmes and obtain guidance from the perspective of independent specialists. This type of evaluation particularly involves a discussion of the results of intern evaluations and, where applicable, any requirements regarding the development of the degree programme. Our schools and departments can choose between two variants:

  • Peer evaluation: every programme undergoes an external review by an evaluation panel every seven years at the latest.
  • Evaluation by advisory boards: during evaluation by an advisory board, the schools/departments and the degree programmes they offer are accompanied by experts who provide constructive criticism over a longer period (at least once a year).

Annual QM meeting

Annual QM meetings take place in every school/department every second calendar year at the latest. The aim of the discussion is to promote an intensive exchange of ideas on issues relating to quality between the schools/departments and central scientific units on the one hand, and between the Presidential Board, the QM Coordinator and other members of the QM team on the other.
