Student Voice is excited to announce a new pilot in partnership with Jisc, an organisation dedicated to providing digital solutions and services to support UK education and research institutions. The pilot will evaluate our service, which uses AI to automatically analyse and categorise student comments, saving time and resources for institutions.
Our service is designed to process large amounts of student survey data, such as the National Student Survey (NSS) responses, and can be customised to fit specific institutional needs. We've trained our model on data from over 100 UK higher education institutions, allowing institutions to benchmark their data against the wider sector.
The purpose of this pilot is to demonstrate how AI-assisted text analysis can provide institutions with a more efficient way to derive insights from student feedback, and ultimately improve the student experience. By participating in the pilot, institutions will have a unique opportunity to evaluate our AI tool against their existing methods for analysing student survey data.
We're offering free analysis of several past years of NSS data to participating institutions, which may also provide new insights into the data and a chance to benchmark their results against the sector. To participate in the pilot, institutions must be able to provide at least 2 years of past NSS data, and be willing to commit to participating in evaluation activity, including online staff interviews with the NCAI team.
As a participating institution, you'll receive support from both the NCAI team and the Student Voice team throughout the process. You won't be required to pay any costs associated with participation, as Jisc has already paid on your behalf.
Overall, this pilot presents an exciting opportunity for higher education institutions and further education colleges to evaluate an AI-assisted tool that has the potential to revolutionise the way student feedback is analysed and acted upon. To register your interest, simply email NCAI@jisc.ac.uk with the required information before March 10th, 2023.
