Presentation of the results
From an analysis of the information, action can be taken to ensure that valuable resources are properly used. For example, the questionnaire may reveal the need for the timetabling of computer access, or perhaps for a clearer introduction to the package and how it is to be used. It will frequently show that where the package is not fully integrated in the course but is seen as an option, it will be used lightly. This should not surprise us; students like lecturers are busy people and seek strategies which have worked in the past to pass the exam.
One of the valuable aspects of the questionnaire is that it covers the entire suite of resources available to the student and therefore will also highlight problems with traditional resources as well as with innovations. So it is a worthwhile exercise even within a course where no new resource has been offered.
