A series of surveys have been conducted in both institutions in order to get a better understanding of students’ and tutors’ attitudes to feedback in general, and how they perceive different modes of sharing feedback on assignments.

  • The OU Tutor survey was taken by 96 tutors in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese and Welsh
  • The OU Student survey is still open. So far it has been taken by 700+ students studying modules in those languages.

The same questionnaires were adapted to the formats of feedback used at the University of Manchester and were also taken by students on Italian modules and their 5 Italian tutors in that institution (exact student numbers to follow).

The following provisional summaries are already available, although further analysis is currently taking place and will be publicised in due course:
