Abstract: Aim: To increase understanding of Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) data in Alice Lee School of Nursing (ALCNS) by exploring perceptions of undergraduate nursing student when undertaking SET surveys. Background: Students’ evaluation of teaching is currently, still the most important form of feedback globally and, in many instances, the only measure of teaching quality in higher education. This is despite a vast body of literature questioning the reliability and validity of this approach. This tool remains a very valuable form of feedback to ensure quality education. There is, however, very little qualitative research that explores both student perceptions on SETs and factors considered when evaluating a module or a teacher in the SET surveys. This limits the ability of teachers and faculties to truly utilize data from SETs. Methods: This is a descriptive qualitative study in which data was collected through individual face-to-face semi-structured interviews using an interview guide. Convenience sampling was used and 16 undergraduate nursing students in ALCNS were recruited. Alongside this, content analysis was conducted simultaneously with data collection. Results: Four main categories: “Perceptions of SETs”, “Determinants of module rating”, “Indicators of high-quality teachers” and “Suggestions for SETs” emerged from the content analysis. Conclusion: The findings allowed faculty administrators and teachers to have increased understanding of SET data. Future research is needed for updating current Suggestions for SETs that reflects evaluation of courses with online components as ALCNS is increasing their e-learning content to keep up with student learning styles in the digital age.
