Confidentiality

Don't worry! Your survey responses are de-identified and in no way linked or associated with your name or student ID. The reason why you need to login to the portal to complete surveys is so that the survey software can display the appropriate surveys according to your enrolment - to ensure that you are eligible to submit an evaluation. It is also required to ensure that we can remind the appropriate students who have not yet submitted an evaluation to complete their surveys.

Publications based on data collected will at all times be de-identified and reporting of data is in aggregate or summary. Your comments are reported verbatim, however the qualitative data has very restricted distribution channels to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of this data.

The University and teaching staff will not have any information that can identify you or your response unless you specifically mention something that may identify you within your comments – such as a specific incident or conversation.

Survey feedback cannot influence your results within units as no survey results (apart from the monitoring of response rates within units) are released until after unit results have been released to students.

You have the right to access personal information that Monash University holds about you subject to any exceptions in relevant legislation. If you wish to seek access to your personal information or inquire about the handling of your personal information, please contact the Monash University Privacy Officer.
