I am worried about my answers not being anonymous. Can my identity be determined in any way?

Confidentiality and anonymity are assured in all COACHE analyses and reports. Your name and email addresses are retained solely for the sake of COACHE research, including reminding respondents to begin or to complete their survey and for limited and IRB-approved follow-up studies. When we submit the survey report to your institution, only the aggregate data is shown in the report. No identifiers are matched to reported responses, and no disaggregated data will be presented for any subgroup with fewer than five respondents. For some institutions, administrators have requested unit-record data in addition to the COACHE survey report. If your institution has done so, that choice is disclosed on the first web page that you see upon clicking the unique link emailed to you. The unit-record data (without your name or email address) will be sent to a representative in your institution, who signed a statement of confidentiality legally guaranteeing that the unit-record data received by him/her will not be individually shared with any individuals who are in a position to make or influence personnel decisions about individual subjects, and that only aggregate data, with no cells smaller than five respondents, will be shared with broader audiences at their institution. If you wish to receive further information about the representative assuming responsibility for the data at your institution, send an email message to COACHE, whose staff will give you the name of your institution's responsible official.

Please note that at the end of the survey, we may ask to retain your contact information for further studies. If you allow us to keep your contact information on file, COACHE will strictly protect the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information. The future studies would not be used for individual campus analysis and no one at your campus will be notified of your participation in future studies.
