Entry IDFeedback on Zip Code Location

Works well with collecting immediate geo-location data points


Consider adding "where you participate in live classes / class streams" so students consider sharing the location where they are live streaming.

Do you care if the students participate live from one location and complete class assignments from another? If yes, consider how to let them enter a second zipcode


I would be interested in reading how you plan to explain the survey at its goals. If the intent is to understand where additional resources are needed or how we better support student’s in accessing reliable internet, it would be nice if this was made clear to those taking the survey. I know this is a huge concern of our students and the framing will of course impact whether they choose to participate.


I struggled to make sense of the instructions to "Enter the zip code of the location where you access class materials and complete class assignments" and I think students will also struggle. Would it be helpful to provide a couple likely scenarios to illustrate? Something like, "For instance, if you most often connect to the internet from X, then list that zip code. On the other hand, if you typically connect to the internet from Y for your classes but complete your assignments at Z, then list the zip code for Z." Or should students have the option to list multiple zip codes?

I think our students could struggle to answer this question because many of them connect to the internet from MULTIPLE locations. They come to campus and connect to the internet there during the day to attend class. They connect to the internet from a different zip code during the afternoon to access class materials. In the evenings, they connect to the internet to complete assignments from a third zip code. This simplistic question makes it appear as if connecting to the internet and access to the internet were a single type of simple activity that occurs consistently in the same way every day, and we know that is not true for many students. Shouldn't this initial question itself reflect the complicated nature of simply connecting to the internet and completing class work online?


Can students provide more than one zip code, e.g. if they split time between home and work or multiple households?


No changes from me.


This is information about the start page and zip code and is the first box. I suppose it should have an admin label.
