Warwick student satisfaction scores

The NSS scores for 2011 have just been released by HEFCE. The headline figure for the university (overall satisfaction with the course) shows a slight movement downwards from the 2010 figures (from 89 to 88 per cent). This aggregate figure conceals wide variations between courses with satisfaction scores for particular subjects ranging from 70-98 per cent. German and Classics achieve the highest satisfaction rates. The feedback scores are more concerning with around half of departments receiving a score of below 60 per cent (and some below 15 per cent) for the question 'Feedback on my work was prompt'. This patchiness in performance shows that the dialogue between staff and students on effective student feedback needs urgently to continue.

The full set of data may be downloaded from the Unistats website.
