Online Student Feedback

As part of a pilot to explore the feasibility of moving towards online student feedback surveys for potential College-wide adoption, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness is piloting EvaluationKIT, a tool that will allow student feedback surveys to be generated and tabulated electronically with an easy integration through the Blackboard Learning Management System.

During this initial implementation process, faculty will not be penalized for low response rates due to shortened administration windows, user error, or software/technical errors.

Note: All MDC students and employees have a Blackboard account.

Students can complete their surveys by computer, tablet, or phone. The surveys are 100% anonymous. The data is collected in EvaluationKIT. The surveys (Classroom and Alternate) are the same surveys that have always been used for the College’s Student Feedback Administration.

EvaluationKIT offers built-in reporting features that allow instructors and administrators to view results in reports, bar-charts, and even download the raw data files. Instructors and administrators can access results within a few clicks and view summary reports for the courses they teach or the areas they oversee. Pilot participants include Virtual College courses and classroom courses.

Yes. Students will begin receiving emails via their MyMDC account, which includes a unique link to the survey on the first day of the online administration period for their course(s). Depending on the term, email reminders are sent to the non-responders every three (3) days (Fall and Spring Terms) or every two (2) days (Summer Term). In addition, if the class is connected to Blackboard, the student logging into Blackboard receives a pop-up window with a message to complete their survey. Students can select the “Do It Later” button to complete the survey at a later time.

Depending on the number of weeks in the term, the first day will be two weeks after the ‘Last Day to Withdraw’ date (16-week,14-week and 12-week terms), or one week after the ‘Last Day to Withdraw’ date (8-week terms), or three days after the ‘Last Day to Withdraw’ date (6-week terms).
