RMIT Major Surveys
There are five major surveys of RMIT students, three of which are administered internally and two externally.
The three major internal RMIT surveys collect student feedback on courses (Course Experience Survey), student feedback on programs (Student Experience Survey), and information regarding the activities of graduates who recently completed their qualification (RMIT Australian Graduate Survey).
Course Experience Survey
The CES is is administered by the SSC to help academic and teaching staff to obtain feedback about their courses and contribute to the improvement of student learning.
HE Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT)
QILT is a coherent suite of national, higher education surveys endorsed by Department of Education and Training that covers student life cycle from commencement to employment. The survey is administered by the Social Research Centre. QILT consists of Student Experience Survey, Graduate Outcome Survey, Graduate Outcome Survey Plus and Employer Satisfaction Survey.
Student Experience Survey (SES)
The SES is designed to capture feedback about a student’s total experience at RMIT, and helps us to clearly identify priorities for improvements to a student’s program, as well as to our overall services and educational offerings. The SES for HE course work will be replaced by QILT in 2016.
Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS)
The GOS replaced the Australian Graduate Survey (AGS) at the end of 2015. It surveys Higher Education graduates approximately four months after they completed their qualification. It includes questions around their experience at RMIT as well as what they are doing post-graduation from an employment/further study perspective.
VET Quality Indicators
Quality Indicator data is used by RTOs to undertake continuous improvement and by national, state and territory registering bodies to inform risk assessment.
