Faculty Survey Privacy Information

The WIU faculty survey is an "invited survey," meaning the survey software is provided with a list of faculty names and email addresses. This list is used to send an email with an invitation to take the survey and a link that is unique to the individual. An option is set to remove all identifying information other than, by email address, who was sent the survey, who started it, and who completed it. In this way a respondent's answers are not paired with her/his name, email address or the IP address of the computer used to take the survey.
