KASPER - Create reference group

This wiki describes how you as a course coordinator [emneansvarlig] can create a reference group in KASPER, how to manage the reference group members in the Microsoft Team after creation. You may also watch our Panopto-video on the same topic (norwegian with english subtitles).

Please note that a survey of all students taking a course must be performed at minimum every third year the course is held to ensure that an accurate representation of the student body is obtained. You can read more about this on the theme page on course evaluation and development

Should you wish to use a different form of student participation for your course, check out the wiki on how to register an alternative form of evaluation.

Note: When you have created the reference group through KASPER, you cannot change to another form of student evaluation.
