Online Administration

To explore the feasibility of moving towards online student feedback surveys for potential College-wide adoption, the Office of Strategy and Institutional Effectiveness piloted an online product - Watermark's Course Evaluations & Surveys (CES, formerly EvaluationKIT) between Fall Term 2016 and Summer Term 2019 that allows student feedback surveys to be generated and tabulated electronically with an easy integration through the Learning Management System (Canvas). 

During this implementation process, faculty were 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 Canvas account.

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

Course Evaluations & Surveys (CES, formerly 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.

Fall 2023 (2237)


This option is only available for Continuing Contract faculty in the Fall Term.

Continuing Contract faculty who choose not to participate, must complete the Opt-out Form no later than September 30, 2023.
