myExperience Question Bank

The myExperience Question Bank includes two sets of questions - course questions and teacher questions. An addditional question can be selected from these sets and added to the standard myExperience survey.
 
Course convenors are able to add one additional course question to the standard questions. Teachers are able to add one additional teacher question to the standard questions.
 
Questions in the question bank are derived from the original CATEI question bank. Obvious duplicates were removed (e.g. the aims of this course were met / the aims of the course were met) and all tenses changed to past tense. The questions have been arranged into themes to allow course convenors and teachers to easily select the question most relevant to them.
 

Adding to the Question Bank

You can request additional questions be added to the Survey Question Data Bank by emailing the request, containing the text of the question/s and a short explanation as to why you feel the question is necessary, to the myExperience team at: myExperience@unsw.edu.au  

Please read the questions in the Bank before you submit a request, as questions which are very similar to existing questions are unlikely to be approved.  The questions cannot be only applicable to a specific course.

Requests for additional questions need to be approved by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education).
