Reporting Methods
Creation of NSS dashboard in 2012 to help staff digest information better
Positive feedback led to standardised dashboard template for all surveys
Provided to Staff and Student Academic Reps
Easy to digest and provide a quick overview (000s of students)
Visual summary improves understanding and is easy to compare with previous years' data

1. Create template for dashboard
The problem...
Inconsistent communication with staff and students
Staff at all levels were unsure as to when surveys ran, who they were for (or who was invited), and their importance
Surveys with low response rates
Staff feeling that the results aren't valid
Issues around closing the feedback loop
Where we are today
Schools and SMT are fully aware of what surveys run, who they are for and when they will receive outcomes from the surveys.

More buy-in from staff at all levels for all surveys

Senior management are taking the results of all surveys seriously
Student Engagement Team - Registry and Academic Services
Alastair and team have also been exceptionally helpful in providing us with weekly breakdowns of the response rate by programme (something that was a nightmare to try and get hold of in the past!). This has been really useful so we can work with our programme teams to encourage the students to participate.
This is exactly
the sort of data that I was looking for so I really appreciate you sharing it with me.
As a note,
we really value the work that you all do - and the results of the survey are massively useful to us. We do use it, and it does make a difference.
Student Engagement Team - Registry and Academic Services
Thank you for listening!

Increased response rates

Schools are looking forward to receiving their dashboards

Currently working with Schools to find out what they are doing as a result of receiving recent dashboards.

Fewer questions and complaints - much more positive feedback!
2. Extract raw data from survey platform and copy into template
3. Dashboards self-populate
First developed for the NSS
A template with a similar look and feel designed for all surveys
The template has been implemented across all our surveys
Freetext reporting example - the same across all surveys
