The Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) has been developed in Australia as a performance indicator for measuring the quality of teaching on particular degree programmes. Students' responses to the CEQ have been shown to vary systematically (a) across different institutions, (b) with students' rated satisfaction with their degree programme as a whole, and (c) with their approaches to studying in higher education. In the present study, responses obtained from students in one British academic department replicated the broad constituent structure of the CEQ, although they also confirmed problems with the composition of one of its subscales concerned with appropriate assessment. It is concluded that the CEQ yields a global index of perceived teaching quality that can be used in a British setting.
