Questionnaires are used to monitor and evaluate the progress of a PhD candidate's project. Questionnaires are usually sent alongside a checkpoint such as the yearly evaluation checkpoints. Depending on the working practices of the Faculty/Graduate School questionnaires are sometimes sent separately.
Faculties/Graduate Schools use questionnaires for PhD candidates and their supervisors.
When a checkpoint is coming up the PhD candidate will receive a reminder email in advance, informing the PhD candidate of any questionnaires accompanying the checkpoint.
There are several different standard questionnaire types already in Hora Finita. Faculties/Graduate schools may add/alter questionnaires depending on their needs and preferences.
The use/frequency/content of questionnaires depends on your Faculty/Graduate school
What are confidential questionnaires?
Some questionnaires such as the 'Supervision Evaluation Questionnaire' are marked as confidential. This means that only the intended respondent can fill in the questionnaire and only the Graduate School Coordinator may view the response.
If a questionnaire is not marked as confidential, the responses can be viewed by both the PhD candidate and the supervisor.
