However, when applicable, if you allow approximately 10-15 minutes for your students to complete surveys during class, research shows response rates improve.

Students may log in with their institution credentials (user name and password) with a separate and distinct link at

Thank you in advance for helping to improve your learning environment!
Sincerely, University Assessment
