Surveys and Evaluations
KUMC has a variety of online survey tools including Watermark (formerly EvaluationKIT), REDCap, and Poll Everywhere. We can design the questionnaire, deploy e-mail notifications to participants, manage the collected data, and report the results for your evaluation or survey.
Compared to paper surveys, web surveys provide you with:
- Faster Response Rates: Questions can be answered by selecting an option or typing in a text box.
- Faster Reporting: Built-in reporting features analyze the data whenever you are ready to create your reports, even seconds after receiving data from participants.
- Less Cost: Online surveys can reduce printing and mailing expenses.
Watermark (formerly EvaluationKIT) is designed for administering course, instructor, and program evaluations, although it can be used for any survey where the respondents are primarily members of the KUMC community. Watermark is managed and supported by TLT. TLT staff can assist with questionnaire design, survey management, data collection, and reporting.
RedCAP is most frequently used for research purposes, although it can be used for general-purpose surveys as well. The Medical Informatics Office provides support and training for RedCap.
Poll Everywhere is a web-based response system that allows you to assess, survey, and obtain feedback from your audience. With Poll Everywhere, you can embed multiple choice questions, word clouds, and clickable images directly into your presentation for an interactive experience.
