Just like last year AEP was successful in the Wageningen University Excellent Education Awards. AEP21306 Econometrics and AEP60306 Advanced Econometrics, both coordinated by Koos Gardebroek, were among the 30 best courses of Wageningen University and awarded with an Excellent Education Award 2015. Both courses were awarded already four times in recent years showing the consistent quality and student satisfaction of these courses. Econometrics was awarded before in 2008, 2010, and 2011 and Advanced Econometrics was successful three times in a row in the period 2009-2011.
Based on results of course evaluations in 2013/2014 the 30 most appreciated course of Wageningen University were identified, Econometrics and Advanced Econometrics among them. To qualify for an award, a course has to meet two conditions: 1) at least 10 students have filled in the course evaluation, and 2) the response rate for the course was at least 20%.
