Anonymous Feedback Tool

We have created a special tool to mirror the Anonymous Feedback tool within Classes*V2. Only official instructors and students enrolled within the course can use this tool.

Anonymous Feedback is currently available in the course navigation by default for Yale College, Divinity School, and School of Law courses. If you are interested in using this tool for another course/school, please use this article to add it to your course navigation: Modify Your Course Navigation.

For courses with multiple instructors, if one instructor reads the feedback, it will appear as “read” for all instructors. 

1. Click “Feedback” from Course Navigation
