Privacy & Confidentiality

Our policy

The UCSC Institutional Research, Assessment, and Policy Studies (IRAPS) office administers the online survey, produces reports and stores the data files.  The IRAPS office does not share individual students’ responses with faculty, staff, or anyone else.

IRAPS’ reports contain data analyzed at the group level (e.g., student experience in a given program).  Only those programs/departments that have at least seven respondents receive a report with a written summary of the results and series of tables containing frequencies of responses.  Responses to open ended questions are paraphrased to protect the respondent's identity.
