Collect & Understand Student Feedback
Capturing and analyzing student feedback is important to improve the classroom experience. With SurveyKing's academic module, feedback collection and analysis is a breeze.
Student Feedback Survey Data
Simply create a survey from scratch or use our classroom survey template. During the drafting process, the survey can be shared with faculity and marked with comments.
Once your course survey is complete, you upload an instructor, student, and class list in an Excel format. There are two types of uploads. A simple and advanced version. (click the links to view the sample files). The advanced import offers more flexibility to capture additional meta data; useful when analyzing results.
Once the file is uploaded, our system does the rest. Administrator and instructor accounts are created, students dashboards to track and take surveys are generated, and email notifications are sent.
Tracking Responses and Surveys
The academic module of SurveyKing includes various ways for students and faculty to track surveys. The list below contains examples:
- Student Dashboard - Used by students to track course surveys. This will be emailed out to each student, and a similar dashboard will also show up in their SurveyKing account.
- Administrator Account - Usually a dean or principal. Here you can track how many students have completed the survey by each instructor.
- Instructor Account - The instructor can view results specific to them and track student survey completion.
Powerful Data Tools to Analyze Results
Unique to SurveyKing is the ability to create custom reports with your survey data. This can be useful to send a speigfc set of results to stake holders (e.g donors, stakeholders)
Only include certain questions, drag and drop new question data, filter questions locally, and share reports with one click. The shared reports can be manipulated as needed by end users, enabling them to draw their own conclusions from the data. An example report can be seen here.
Truly Anonymous Responses:
SurveyKing is the only company that offers k-anonymity. This means that unless you collect more than five responses for a certain characteristic, the results will never be shown. For example, if you tried to filter the survey for a particular student name or ID, there would only be one match, and thus the results would not show. If you tried to filter by student first name only, and there were less than five matches, no results would be displayed.
Other survey platforms strip all meta data from responses that are marked anonymous. This in turn would prevent a school from drilling into important metrics (e.g. segmenting results by as subject, instructor, student demographic)
Automatic Sentiment Analysis:
Using natural language processing and machine learning, our software will automatically categorize answers to open ended (text) questions into positive, negative, or neutral buckets, revealing the emotion behind what students are saying. You can then quickly filter or compare data based on these categories.
Additionally, our software will detect if any gibberish or non stranded words have been submitted, thus eliminating garbage data.
Title IX Analysis:
Similar to sentiment analysis, SurveyKing offers the ability to automatically identify answers to open ended questions that might be Title IX compliance violations. This feature saves administrators hours of work combing through answers manually. The survey results can be filtered to show responses that have been flagged. These filtered results can then be shared with the proper reporting channels, while keeping student identities anonymous.
The reporting section also gives you the ability to create comparisons, or pivots of your data. You can segment results based on subject, student age, instructor tenure, and more. This gives faculty the ability to spot hidden trends and relationships within the data.
