Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Source: Student evaluations.
Feedback
The assessment requirement for planning the testing and or evaluation and then reporting the outcomes is uneccssarily repetitive.
Recommendation
Whilst experience has shown that where teams do not iteratively and effectively seek feedback from client/stakeholders and implement the advice recieved a less useful product may result, it is clear that the way this feedback process is assessed needs to be streamlined. This aspect is highlighted as needing further review.
Action Taken
The testing/evaluation feedback record is such an important factor for ultimate project success. It cannot be made less significant and neither can the steps reduced. In the latest iteration of assessment an attempt to simplify naming of items in the process flow was made. However, for effective project management these progressive checks cannot be eliminated.
