Institutional Surveys on Learning Experience (ISLE) Administered by EDC

EDC has been conducting annual surveys since 2012 to collect students’ feedback on their learning gains and experiences at PolyU. Starting from 2021/22, these surveys are revamped as Institutional Surveys on Learning Experience (ISLE), which invite the following groups of students:

  • First year undergraduate students (ISLE – Y1)
  • Final year undergraduate students (ISLE – FY)
  • Final year taught postgraduate students (ISLE – FY (TPG))

The ISLE aims to understand how to better support and enhance students’ learning by gathering their views on various aspects of their learning and teaching at the university.

The survey results, including both quantitative data and qualitative comments, are shared with the University, Faculties, Departments and Programmes for quality assurance and enhancement purposes on learning and teaching. EDC also facilitates discussions with Deans, Heads, programme leaders and relevant staff to address any issues or concerns arising from the findings.


Access to Reports

The ISLE reports can be accessed from the online one-stop platform “Learning Analytics Platform (LAP)”, which also provides reports on other learning and teaching areas. The LAP can be accessed by staff and those administrative staff who have been granted access rights via
