Summative evaluations are usually carried out at the end of a course and generally measure the student’s learning experience overall (levels of satisfaction, engagement and provided support). Summative evaluation informs summary judgements of teachers, the appropriateness of course material, learning, teaching and assessment methods, and provides information for quality assurance and external review. The university has implemented a centralised online system, the Summative Evaluation Tool (SET) to support summative course and teaching evaluations for most formal courses. Summative evaluations can provide rich data that can be used to enhance and improve your course.
