Denver, CO – December 3, 2014 – EvaluationKIT, a leader in enterprise online course evaluation and survey software for higher education institutions, has expanded its existing partnership with Instructure to become a premier partner.

Through EvaluationKIT’s turnkey integration with Instructure’s learning management system, Canvas, colleges and universities around the world can easily collect, analyze and make use of valuable student feedback within their institutions.
“Being the first company in our space to become a premier partner signifies the critical role our system plays in helping colleges and universities manage the student feedback process, and is a testament to the great traction we have experienced with Canvas customers adopting our solution,” said Kevin Hoffman, president and CEO of EvaluationKIT. “We are grateful to be a part of this impressive ecosystem and look forward to further collaboration with Instructure, its partners, and the more than 1,000 Canvas customer institutions. Together, our goal is to not only help schools efficiently administer course evaluations, but also to provide valuable data and analytics that assist in managing quality and feed into continuous improvement initiatives.”

Using a unique mix of Learning Tools Interoperability™ (LTI™) and Canvas API functionality, EvaluationKIT seamlessly integrates with Canvas, automatically notifying a student when they have a survey to take and allowing them to easily access their surveys directly from within Canvas. As well, instructors and administrators can access their own automated reports and analytics directly within Canvas. EvaluationKIT’s turnkey integration functionality includes features so that Canvas can be used as a data source to securely sync all course and user information from Canvas with EvaluationKIT, providing an efficient means for populating this information and for keeping it automatically updated when add/drop enrollment changes are made in the LMS.
