MySurveys (Class Climate)

Class Climate logo


Scantron’s Class Climate was developed as an effective web-based tool for comprehensively implementing and processing surveys for quality assurance purposes. The program helps to assess student learning and teacher effectiveness, of which the end-of-term course evaluation is one form of measurement among many at Iowa State University.


  • Develop a single survey for mobile, online, and paper delivery. Class Climate automatically displays the right format for the device.
  • All results are stored in a single database so you see unified results at a glance.
  • Scheduled reports provide instructor feedback rapidly and automatically.
  • Quality Measurement Dashboard displays results as soon as students respond.
  • Simplified tracking matches your organization’s training program structure.

Getting Started

Class Climate course evaluations are administered by one of these departmental contacts. The departmental contact will create the evaluation and distribute it to students electronically. Once the semester has ended, the departmental contact will share the results of the evaluations with the instructor(s) of record.

Adding Class Climate to your Canvas course

Adding the Class Climate link to your Canvas course makes it easy for students to locate their course evaluations. To add the Class Climate link to your course, follow the steps in these guides:

  • Login into Canvas and open the course.
  • Follow the steps in the ‘How do I manage Course Navigation links?‘ guide to enable the link for the My Surveys.
  • Click Save.
  • Click the My Surveys link to access the surveys dashboard.
    • Note: The survey dashboard is only available to actual students and instructors; it does not work with Student Preview. If you see your class listed on the dashboard, your students will be able to see it also. If a course is missing from the dashboard, contact your Class Climate administrator for assistance.
