Guiding Principles

The principles detailed on this page guide the development, design and implementation of the Student Course Evaluation.

1.

Freedom of Expression

 

The FHSE encourages freedom of expression and constructive feedback. Practicing and protecting freedom of expression is fundamental to a healthy culture of dialogue.

2.

Anonymity and Confidentiality

 

The FHSE protects the anonymity of individual respondents and the confidentiality of their responses. Protecting the anonymity of respondents and the confidentiality of their responses on course evaluations is imperative and necessary to encourage and guarantee the free expression of views.

3

The Physical and Mental Safety of Members of Staff and Students

 

The FHSE protects the physical and mental safety of members of the University community. In the context of the Student Course Evaluation, this includes the investigation of any misuse of the Course Evaluation platform for threatening or discriminatory purposes.

4

Scientific Rigour and Empirically Validated Design

 

The FHSE is committed to providing fair and scientifically sound evaluation of courses offered in the Faculty. For this reason, the design and implementation of the Student Course Evaluation is carried out with scientific rigour and applies established psychometric and sociological methods to guarantee the integrity and validity of the data produced

5

 Transparency of Procedures and Trust

 

The FHSE favours open dialogue about the Student Course Evaluation and its implementation. In order to guarantee transparency and develop a culture of trust, the implementation of the Student Course Evaluation abides by the ROI (Règlement d’ordre intérieur), Luxembourgish law and the Rules and Regulations document detailing the different steps involved in collecting, processing and disseminating the Student Course Evaluation data.
