Centre for Academic Practice

Past Projects

National Student Survey (NSS)

  • Every year we analyse the qualitative data from the National Student Survey

At the request of the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Teaching), Prof Morag Bell, the Centre for Academic Practice has led on the institutional analysis of qualitative data in the NSS since 2007. This sees the Quality Enhancement Officers (QEOs) analysing, organising and reporting on the free text comments supplied annually by final year undergraduate students.

Reports go to:

  • University senior management
  • the Learning and Teaching Committee
  • individual schools/departments (ADTs)

This work complements the analysis of quantitative data and is embedded as part of the institution’s annual academic quality cycle (e.g. Annual Programme Review). Further information is available on Loughborough's National Student Survey webpages
