Section7–Course Evaluation and Development

Each semester feedback is sought from students about the courses offered and continual improvements are made based on this feedback. In this unit of study, we will seek your feedback through the teaching and unit of study evaluation process. Students are encouraged to complete these evaluations.

Section 8–Quality Assurance

Elite Education Institute is actively monitoring student learning and quality of the student experience in all its programs. A random selection of completed assessment tasks may be used for quality assurance, such as to determine the extent to which course and unit of study program learning goals are being achieved. The information is required for accreditation purposes, and aggregated findings will be used to inform changes aimed at improving the quality of Elite Education Institute programs. All material used for such processes will be treated as confidential and will not be related to course grades.
