        Reaction

        Students’ satisfaction is the thing that being measured for this criterion. Students in English for Occupational Purpose (EOP) course are reflected as trainees in a training program. The course is evaluated by looking if the students are satisfied with the content of the subject.

This is one of the methods for lecturer to see if the students satisfy with the lessons. At the end of the semester, students need to fill the online survey form which is known as Student Feedback Survey. If they do not fill the form, they could not access their subject pre-registration process, and their final examination confirmation slip. In the survey form, there are several parts such as the evaluation towards the lecturer, the facility, and the course itself.
