National Student Satisfaction with History

Writing about web page http://www.hefce.ac.uk/news/hefce/2010/nssresult.htm

The National Student Satisfaction survey data for 2010 has been released by HEFCE today. The History Subject Centre has produced a detailed report on the 2009 data.

Our preliminary analysis of the 2010 information demonstrates that satisfaction with HE History teaching continues at a high level with an improvement from 81% to 89% for the question: 'Overall, I am satisfied with the quality of the course'. The weakest area for History remains assessment and feedback but here there have been some marginal improvements in the scores for the sector.
