Quick Scan: Instructions

The Quick Scan consists of the following four (4) Themes (thematic groups).

  1. Vision and Policy
  2. Organisation
  3. Learner
  4. Teaching

Each theme is divided into four different attention areas (16 attention areas in total).

How to use the Quick Scan

STEP 1. Make a selection of the attention areas (at least 5) you are interested in.

Useful tips: To create a multi-perspective on institute development, we advise the user to make this selection jointly (managers, teaching staff, administrative staff together) or discuss and agree upon selections to be made by different stakeholders.

STEP 2. Decide how to answer the questions. Jointly or as separate stakeholders?

Useful tips: According to the choice made in step 1 either use the differences of perspectives of managers, teaching staff and administrative staff, or decide to go ahead by answering from a single perspective.

STEP 3. Get sets of short statements and answer accordingly.

Useful tips: Please indicate for each of the statements presented to what degree you can agree with the statement by simply ticking the appropriate box next to each statement.

STEP 4. Get feedback report

Useful tips: To enhance good learning outcomes feedback of the quick scan will be provided to you in the form of a spider graph representing scores on specific attention areas, as well as general advice for further development in these attention areas. Scores are presented in a 4-level scale (1-4) Spider Graph. The 16 attention areas are the axes of the web; scores have the same meaning as stated in the “Quick Scan” questionnaire (4 for Completely, 3 for Largely, 2 for Somewhat, 1 for Not).

Keep in mind! Your answers will not be saved in any traceable way!

Before you continue please select from the below at least 5 attention areas you are interested in to run the Quick Scan. You can also select the default option. In that case please click SELECT ALL button and the quick scan will cover ALL attention areas. Completing the scan in this last way will take about 20 minutes of time.
