Teaching staff are encouraged to use the Student Perceptions of Teaching survey, commonly referred to as SPOT. It is an evaluation instrument designed to provide feedback to teachers about their teaching.

The questionnaire is structured to enable student feedback to be obtained on specific aspects of an individual's teaching.  The survey has 12 standard items with two open ended comment questions. Three survey types are available; one primarily for teaching (lecturing) one for tutoring (including lab demonstrating) and one for team teaching, which provides an aggregated evaluation for all members of a teaching team.

Further information on SPOT can be found at the SPOT office webpage:
