Survey Anonymity and Confidentiality

The Office of Institutional Research and Testing regards the confidentiality of survey data to be of utmost importance.

Anonymous Surveys

We want to assure you that your responses are completely anonymous. Responses to anonymous surveys cannot be traced back to the respondent. No personally identifiable information is captured unless you voluntarily offer personal or contact information in any of the comment fields. Additionally, your responses are combined with those of many others and summarized in a report to further protect your anonymity.

Confidential Surveys

Confidential surveys collect personally identifiable information that may be combined with existing data in Baylor University databases for further analysis. No personally identifiable information will be reported back to the requestor unless you voluntarily offer personal or contact information in any of the comment fields. Additionally, your responses are combined with those of many others and summarized in a report to further protect your anonymity.
