Re “NSS manipulation claims ‘raise questions’ about data reliability” (News, 26 May). There is simply bad teaching in universities; I have found that myself and have reported the misuse of statistics. In my case, only a small percentage of postgraduates completed the survey – well below 10 per cent. Nevertheless, everywhere on campus the statement was that 71 per cent of students were satisfied with the teaching. This is misleading advertising by the university.
In my case, the School of Law failed to follow not only the university guidelines but also the rules in its own handbook. This is a School of Law, for heaven’s sake. It is right to point out the appallingly cavalier approach to teaching and learning by certain staff. Fee payers deserve better.
