Evaluations Concept

Evaluation Concept of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy

Subject and Implementation of the Evaluations

Courses, individual selected modules and entire subjects are evaluated at regular intervals or on an ad hoc basis in order to ensure the quality of studies and teaching.

Courses

  • the evaluation of the courses is carried out by the student council
  • a specific questionnaire is used for the course evaluation in order to collect questions on, among other things, the teaching of the material by the lecturer and on the follow-up, preparation and practice effort required for individual courses
  • within the first weeks of lectures, the lecturers receive initial feedback, which allows for adjustments to be made while the course is still in progress
  • at the end of the lecture period, the lecture survey is conducted online or via questionnaire in the courses
  • the evaluation is carried out by the student council in cooperation with the deans of studies
  • the publication of the results takes place semester by semester in the "BlaBla-Operator" of the student council
  • the summary evaluation is part of the annual teaching reports submitted to the subject commission and the faculty council
  • Measures are derived in close consultation between the deans of studies and the subject commission.

Modules

  • the evaluation of the modules is carried out by the quality officer in consultation with the deans of studies and the student council
  • for the module evaluation, the data of the course evaluation is used and a specific questionnaire is used on an ad hoc basis to collect questions on the workload, knowledge transfer and examination technique of individual modules, among other things
  • in addition, individual evaluations of modules are carried out over several years of study
  • the evaluation is carried out by the Quality Officer in consultation with the Deans of Studies and the Student Council.
  • die Veröffentlichung der Ergebnisse erfolgt durch mindestens jährlich stattfindende studentische Vollversammlungen
  • the summary evaluation is part of the annual teaching reports submitted to the subject commission and the faculty council
  • measures are derived in close consultation between the deans of studies and the subject commission.

Course of study / Subject

  • the subject evaluation is carried out at the latest every nine years by the Quality Officer in consultation with the Deans of Studies and the Student Council
  • a specific questionnaire is used for the subject evaluation in order to collect questions on, among other things, the entry into the programme, the structure of the programme, the advisory and support services and the organisation of examinations
  • in individual cases, certain subjects may be evaluated before the end of the nine-year period
  • the evaluation is carried out by the quality officer in consultation with the deans of studies
  • the publication of the results takes place through student general assemblies held at least annually
  • the summary evaluation is part of the annual teaching reports submitted to the subject commission and the faculty board
  • measures are derived in close consultation between the deans of studies and the subject commission

Further (university-wide) evaluations and surveys

  • Entry survey / Summer School every summer semester (Faculty of Physics and Astronomy)
  • Entry survey / MINT pre-courses every winter semester (Faculty of Physics and Astronomy and Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science)
  • University-wide survey of first-year students (all faculties)
  • University-wide survey of teaching staff (all faculties)
  • Graduate survey university-wide (all faculties)
  • etc.

Berichterstattung und Planung der Evaluationen

Status of planning until 2027 and reporting

The ongoing results are discussed and measures are derived in irregular and ad hoc meetings between the deans of studies and the student council and lecturers, as well as in regular meetings of the study commission, the faculty council, the lecturers' assembly and the student plenary assembly. Reporting takes place via the annual teaching reports and, if necessary, in a subject audit.
