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 platform (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 Blackboard Learning Management System.
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 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.

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

Alternative Surveys are administered in courses such as Co-Op, Independent Studies, Competency-based Education and Virtual College.
