A version of the Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) has been included in the Graduate Careers Council of Australia national survey of university graduates from 1993 onward. In addition to the quantitative response items noted above, the CEQ also includes an invitation to respondents to write open-ended comments on the best aspects (BA) of their university course experience and those aspects most needing improvement (NI). These responses provide a rich source additional qualitative information that can help in understanding what students had in mind when agreeing or disagreeing with the numerical response items. The collection of textual data in large-scale surveys is commonplace, due to the rich descriptions of respondent experiences they can provide at relatively low cost, however historically these data have been underutilised because they are time consuming to analyse manually, and there has been a lack of automated tools to exploit such data efficiently.
