Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Your Views At A Glance! Dear FASS, thanks for your active participation in the Feedback Project 2014/2015! Here are some of the data we have collated. Do look out for new updates from us as we continue to address the issues raised in the surveys that you have filled up! As the semester just came to an end, we will be addressing issues relevant to Module Feedback and Concerns in Areas of Studies! YES86.2%671 NO13.8%107 Qns 7a. If general summary feedback were provided for each module after release of results, would you like to receive a copy?(Respondents could only choose a SINGLE response) YOUR MAIN CONCERNS IN THE AREAS OF STUDIES RESPONSE 1: SEP Applications (for Freshmen in Semester 2, for general FASS population) Freshmen can apply for SEP in their 2nd semester of study even without a CAP; the Deans Office will adjust their criteria for assessment with a more holistic approach, such as looking at ones written statement, University Admission Score, and involvement in CCAs.Nevertheless, comparing the CAP of candidates is still the most transparent and clear method to made decisions. However, when deliberating between 2 academically inclined students with very similar CAPs (eg: 4.63 vs. 4.65), selectors will inevitably use other criteria. RESPONSE 2: FASS Club will conduct Bidding Clinics before Semester 1 starts to clear up any misconceptions, if you are unsure, you can ask your seniors or visit and click on the year of your cohort to read up more. RESPONSE 3: We encourage you to raise these concerns through the Online Student Feedback on Teaching Exercise carried out at the end of each semester. (do check your emails for the link) RESPONSE 4: Releasing Feedback on Professors and ModulesThis will be discussed within the Faculty but due to many sensitivities and issues regarding such a move, it could be difficult. The wide range of modules offered is of different natures and this may cause unequal comparisons between each module, and teaching capacities of lecturers. You can make use of for reviews from seniors and write in your own too, so that your juniors can benefit from them in the future. RESPONSE 5: Honours Reclassification and Lvl 4000 ModulesWith the new Honours reclassification and hence increased demand for Lvl 4000 modules in the coming years, the Deans Office is already working on securing sufficient class spaces and tutors for all compulsory Lvl4000 modules. RESPONSE 6: As we are students of FASS, a Social Science degree requires students to be competent across disciplines and hence have the capacity to do well in FASS modules outside of their major. RESPONSE 7: Some departments do not release past year papers as they do not want their students to be fixated on specific exam questions and learning methods. RESPONSE 8: Students who do not possess the necessary English Language qualifications will be put through a QET test ( and language module(s) depending on their results. So dont worry about not being qualified for the modules. This is the end of the updates for the week For enquiries on the details mentioned above, please email Stay tuned as we bring you more updates on the issues that are important to YOU! ISSUE 1: Criteria for choosing SEP is too academic based. ISSUE 1:Students want to understand mistakes so as to improve, and to get an idea of the performance of the cohort. RESPONSE 1: Module Feedback from Professors to StudentsCurrently, there are works in the pipeline to push for most (if not all) FASS modules to provide post-finals review summary over IVLE. ISSUE 2: Information is too general and cant help individuals enough. RESPONSE 2: Some lecturers provide individualised feedback students if class size is small enough. Lecturers teaching larger classes have been encouraged to provide general feedback to students on their performance in final examinations over IVLE. ISSUE 2: Freshmen may be confused about modular system ISSUE 3: Students have raised certain issues they had with regards to their lecturers teaching methods and syllabus. ISSUE 4: Many hope that students feedback on lecturers and modules can be made public so students can choose module that fit their interests and needs. ISSUE 5: There are insufficient level 4000 modules for the Honours students to take, especially with more students set to take this path. ISSUE 6: Why is the S/U option not available for FASS non-major modules? ISSUE 7: Not all modules have past year papers to refer to; some past year papers do not have answers. Need more practice questions with answers so as to better prepare for exams. ISSUE 8: Some students hope for essay writing classes because not all students are well-equipped to do so when they enter FASS.
