Peer Course Reviews

AUSU has launched new online Peer Course Reviews for Athabasca University undergraduate courses! The Peer Course Reviews give students a confidential way to rate their course experience at AU, and to provide feedback for fellow AU students!

You could Win $250 for submitting a Peer Course Review!

AUSU will give out an Amazon Gift card worth $250 to a student who fills out a Peer Course Review by September 30, 2021. The winner will be chosen by random draw.

See below for details on the prize draw.

*Make note, if no reviews show up for the specific course you want to see, that just means no one has filled out a review for that course yet. Keep checking back – there will be more reviews once more students participate!

Why should you fill out an AUSU Peer Course Review?

  • They can be filled out any time, even after you have completed your course(s).
  • They are completely anonymous, so your review has no impact on your grades or relationship with your AU tutor or course expert.
  • The AUSU Peer Course Review is different than the course evaluation sent out by Athabasca University, with a peer-based review perspective.
  • AU students will be able to see the feedback provided by their peers to help them make informed choices about the courses they register in.

AUSU will give out prizes quarterly (4 times per year) to students who fill out our Peer Course Reviews! Winners will be chosen by random draw from all reviews filled out each quarter.

We encourage students to fill out a review after every AU course they take! The more students fill out reviews, the more results you will be able to view!

The data provided in the reviews will be monitored by AUSU so that any ongoing concerns with courses can be brought up to Athabasca University. The students filling out the reviews will remain anonymous and their identity will not be shared with the university.

If you have an urgent concern about a specific course or your experience at Athabasca University, please contact AUSU directly.

Prize Draw Rules

AUSU will give out an Amazon Gift card worth $250 to a student who fills out a peer course review and enters the prize draw by December 31, 2020. The gift card recipient will be chosen at random from all prize entries during each quarter.

To enter the prize draw, you will need to fill out a Peer Course Review on an Athabasca University course, and you will be asked to enter your Athabasca University Student ID number in the last question to be entered for the prize.

You are not required to submit your ID number to submit your review, only if you wish to be entered to win a prize. Your ID number will not be attached to your course review and will only be visible to AUSU staff for the purpose of drawing prize winners. Student ID numbers and the identity of students filling out the reviews will not be publicized, or provided to AU, or connected to the review content. If you have questions about the collection of personal information, please contact our office at [email protected]

For each Peer Course Review completed by a current or former AU student, participants will receive one contest entry.
