Feedback from Student feedback

Feedback

The textbook does not suit all students

Recommendation

The textbook is still an important part of the unit and is recommended for the students to have as a resource. Previously, the unit has relied heavily on the textbook. With new lecture and demonstration recordings, the unit is moving away from this reliance. The unit coordinator has explored dozens of other potential textbooks, and found that no one text covers everything that is required in this unit. The only other alternative is to recommend two or more textbooks, and this is not a viable alternative. The Field textbook is particularly useful both for this unit, because it contains a large amount of practice material, and also for studies and research going forward, because it contains a lot of information about alternative analyses when assumptions are violated, amongst other things. It is for these reasons that the textbook is still an important part of the unit, and is recommended, although complete reliance on the textbook has been minimised.

Feedback

Zoom meetings are at a time that does not suit all students

Recommendation

The Zoom sessions will continue to be run outside of work hours in order to be accessible to as many students as possible and will be recorded. Students who cannot attend the session can ask questions before or after the Zoom session on the forums.
