Pedagogical Monitoring Survey (en)

Survey application (since 2nd semester 2015/2016)

Current rules:

    1- Taking into account the importance of the students’ involvement and responsibility on the quality of teaching, as well as this surveys’ relevance for the evaluation processes required by the legislation in force, the participation in this survey is mandatory.

    2. The pedagogical monitoring survey is activated when the answer period of the first course that ends during the semester begins.

    3- The courses'/teachers' questionnaires answer period for each course corresponds to the last 20% of each course classes’ duration. Examples: if the course classes’ duration is 100 days, the questionnaire must be responded during the last 20 days of the courses’ classes; if the course classes’ duration is 50 days, the questionnaire must be responded during the last 10 days of classes, and so on (but if the courses’ classes duration is only 2 weeks, the courses’ questionnaire will be available to be answered during the last week of classes).

    4- During the courses questionnaires’ answer period (the last 20% of each course classes’ duration) students have the possibility to participate in the pedagogical monitoring survey responding that they don’t want to answer it, submitting that response option.

    5- The non-participation in the pedagogical monitoring survey implies the blocking of the students’ curriculum in Fenix throughout the whole semester (Dispatch nr. 9/2016 from ISCTE-IUL's Rector, available in Fenix).

    6- If the students haven’t responded the courses’ questionnaires during its answer period or if they haven’t responded that they didn’t’ want to answer them, students still have the possibility to avoid the curriculum blocking until the end of the semester if, in the meantime, they fill the unanswered questionnaires.

    7- The final submission pedagogical monitoring survey of the present semester is only possible after the student has responded to the questionnaire general block, to all courses’ questionnaires in which he is enrolled and at least one teacher in each course.

      Answering periods and courses' blocking definitions


      Current rules:

      • Each course’s answering period may last up to 40 days and is defined taking into account the classes’ period of each course.
      • The answering period begins 30 days before each course’s last day of classes, except in the cases in which the courses’ duration is lower than this 30 days period. In this cases, the survey will be opened in the following day of the first day of classes;
      • The courses’ answering period finishes 10 days after each courses’ last day of classes.
      • Taking into account the importance of the students’ involvement and responsibility on the teaching quality, as well as this surveys’ relevance for the evaluation processes required by the legislation in force, the participation in this survey is mandatory, obviously including the option for the student to respond that he/she doesn´t want to respond. The consequence of the non-participation in this survey is the temporary blocking of the student’s access to their Curriculum page in the Fenix system (Dean's Dispatch order nr. 73/2010):
        • For the students that don’t participate in the course’s survey the blocking period of the curriculum’s access is 20 days and defined in the following way:
          • in the last 10 days of the course’s answering period the blocking of access to the curriculum is applied, but if the student responds during this period the blocking is immediately removed (as you can see in the upwards image marked in orange);
          • in the last 10 days after the course’s answering period the blocking of access to the curriculum is applied without the possibility of answering the course’s survey (as you can see in the upwards image marked in red).
        • Since the blocking of access to the curriculum is applied taking into account each course’s answering period, an overlapping of blockings regarding diferent courses can occur;
        • If a course survey hasn’t been filled in, the students may still answer to the remaining courses’ surveys in which the answering period is open.
