How it Works
Midland College uses EvaluationKit software to administer course surveys. Be assured
that the EvaluationKit software protects student anonymity. Paper based surveys are
handwritten, so the online version better protects a student's identity. The surveys
are given prior to the students receiving their grades and results withheld from faculty
until after the grading period. Survey access is organized and controlled for each
student. Students view their own Student Dashboard where they can only access surveys
for courses they are enrolled in. Students are only able to provide one survey submission
per survey, and their responses are completely anonymous.
Students may wonder why they receive an email if they have not completed their evaluations, or why instructors encourage the students to complete evaluations. EvaluationKit records each instance of a completed survey for a given course/instructor, so that a student can only complete an evaluation for a particular course once. At the time the survey, completion is marked in EvaluationKit and the identifying student information is disassociated from the data. This allows the system to recognize that students have completed the evaluation process without linking their identities, including names, schools, or majors with the actual responses.
