Evaluation is an important instrument for ensuring and developing the quality of studies and teaching and looks at teaching as a whole. Teaching evaluations provide lecturers with feedback on students' impressions of their courses, or students are asked about their experiences during their studies - e.g. the degree programs and their structures.

Evaluation as a basis for dialog and development

The information obtained can be used to reflect on one's own teaching behavior or to further develop studies and degree programs. Specific target groups such as alumni or topics such as the digital semester can also become the focus of evaluations and their results can be used to reflect on institutional issues.

Evaluation results offer a good opportunity to enter into a dialog with students and staff - this can help to ensure and, if necessary, improve the quality of your own courses and teaching as a whole.

Regular deadlines

The registration deadline for evaluations is always before the start of the respective semester:

  • Deadline for evaluations in the summer semester: March 1
  • Deadline for evaluations in the winter semester: August 1




The evaluation at the HfMDK Frankfurt pursues the following goals:

  • Promote communication about teaching and study structures
  • Increase awareness of teaching issues and study structures
  • Strengthen strengths and counteract weaknesses
  • To compare external and self-assessments
  • targeted promotion of positive (learning) effects
  • Support the further development of teaching and institutional framework conditions

In addition, the evaluation serves to identify development potential and to design and implement measures to ensure and promote quality.
