Teaching and Supervision Evaluation System (SPPP):

Teaching and Supervision Evaluation System  (SPPP) is a system that evaluates the quality of teaching a course from the student’s perspective. It is one of the official customer feedback systems used to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of the Quality Management System (QMS) MS ISO 9001: 2008 Management of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Studies(by coursework). In addition, the input obtained from students through the system is also used for continuous quality improvement of the programme. In this system, the feedback questions are divided into THREE parts, namely:

    1. General (course content, infrastructure and equipment – 7 questions)
    2. Faculty / Centre / Institute (3-10 questions for each mode of teaching used)
    3. Evaluation of Lecturer (5 questions for each lecturer who conducts the course)

The General Part and the Part for the Evaluation of Lecturer will be used to assess the achievement of the quality objectives of MS ISO 9001: 2008, in addition to improving the quality of teaching and delivering lectures on an ongoing basis, while the Faculty/Centre/Institute Part is used exclusively for internal purposes of the Faculty / Centre / Institute in improving the quality of teaching as well as for the design and revision of the curriculum.
