Abstract

There has long been the suspicion amongst staff in Art & Design that the ratings given to their subject disciplines in the UK's National Student Survey are adversely affected by a combination of circumstances ? a ?perfect storm?. The ?perfect storm? proposition is tested by comparing ratings for Art & Design with those for a selection of other subjects chosen because they share some features that might lead to lower ratings on the survey. Data from a small-scale qualitative study are used to throw light on what might lie behind the sector-wide statistics. The comparisons suggest that there is some validity in the ?perfect storm? proposition. More broadly, the article points to the need for sophistication in interpreting findings from the survey, irrespective of the subject area.
