Abstract

Universities typically use student evaluation questionnaires (SEQs) as tools for gathering data for course improvement. Since 2002 SEQs have predominantly been used in online modalities in the developed world. However, the developing world has historically had issues with the reliability of information communication technology (ICT), such that this is the first generation to experience ICT as a dependable commodity. This research is located in a university in Trinidad and Tobago where further historical and contextual matters are at play. Results from a pilot online student evaluation system found that students were just as likely to use online SEQs as they were their hard copy equivalents, and that future students are more likely to favour the online format.
