Adding Additional Questions to the Survey

If you are involved in a course in the myExperience survey, you will be able to customise the survey by selecting an additional question from the myExperience Survey Question Bank. Adding a question is not compulsory and if no question is chosen the survey will go live to students with only the standard questions.
Course convenors can add one course question to the standard core questions.
Teachers can add one question about their teaching.
 
The Guide to Adding a Survey Question page will assist you. The opportunity to add questions will usually be available for one week, just prior to the survey going live to students.

 

Adding Questions to the myExperience Survey Question Bank

You can also 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 current questions in the Survey Question Data 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).
