A Note on Evaluation Anonymity
The online evaluations and surveys in this course,
including the departmental course evaluation, utilize the
system. This system is designed with the protection of the students's
anonymity (for anonymous evaluations and surveys) as a high priority.
Only the evaluation administrators have access to the identity data,
and then not at all conveniently. They are obligated to guard access to
it and only access it themselves if strictly necessary for the purposes
of completing successful evaluations. After the course is over, this
identity data is deleted, leaving no permanent record of the evaluators'
Since I, your instructor for this course, am also an evaluation
administrator, there may be concern about the fact that I have access
to my own evaluation identity data. Therefore, on my honor, I give my
word that I will not use this access with regards to my own evaluations
and will make no attempt to circumvent their anonymity protections.
