Teaching Evaluation

Yes. The utilized system EvaSys provided by Electic Paper does not allow to trace any information back to individual students.

TUM SoM students can review teaching evaluation results. A previous arranged appointment and a valid student identity card are mandatory. For making an appointment please contact with a short e-mail to lehrevaluation@wi.tum.de.

Each semester students are asked to evaluate the courses they visited. The survey is anonymous and is executed through a standardized questionnaire, which varies depending on the format of the course (lecture, tutorial, seminar, internship and excursion). The questionnaires are available in English or German. On a 5-point Likert scale students give feedback about the extent of agreement and disagreement to different areas (e.g. conception and structure, knowledge impartment, learning environment, appropriate degree of difficulty and acquisition of competency). Open text fields allow for further ideas of improvement and comments.

For each course and question the following measures will be calculated:

  • Relative frequency of each answer category
  • Mean value
  • Standard deviation
  • Median

Completing a questionnaire requires approximately 10-15 minutes. Paper-based surveys will be conducted by an ad-hoc named student and will be handed to the office of the quality management.

A PDF-report comprising the results of the survey will be generated for each course. As soon as results are available the report including the comments will be sent to the respective lecturers.
We ask the lecturers to use the opportunity to discuss survey outcomes with students during the course.

Lecturers with outstanding results will be suggested by the Vice Dean of Academic Affairs for the “Best Teaching Award”, which is awarded every year during the “Tag der Fakultät”.

If you have any questions or if you want to evaluate an additional course, please contact the Teaching Evaluation Team under lehrevaluation@wi.tum.de.

According to §10 of the Bavarian Higher Education Law (BayHSchG) the teaching quality is regularly evaluated through student questionnaires.

The objective of the evaluation is the continuous improvement of teaching at the TUM SoM. The teaching evaluation data is the basis for:

  • Feedback to lecturers about their courses
  • Discussions about potential improvements
  • Enhanced communication between students and lecturers

The teaching evaluation gives students the possibility to actively contribute to the improvement of teaching.
