Creating and Modifying a Class

Can CATME be used for people other than students?

Yes. If the CATME account holder is a staff or faculty member at a university, the surveys that they create are not monitored. The staff or faculty member can use the CATME system however they choose. If the survey does not involve higher-education students, we ask that the instructor does not select the “Release to Researchers” option for releasing the survey results.

How do I delete a class?

You must first archive all the activities for the class, then delete these activities. After you do this, you can select the blue “Delete Class” button found in the bottom right corner of the “Class Editor” page.

Why can we not change the student email from the student editor page?

If you are unable to change a student’s incorrect email address, it may be because another instructor already registered that student’s correct email address. In this case, you must delete the student from the survey and add them back in with the correct email address. If any student completed the survey under the incorrect email address, that student and the student’s teammates must redo the surveys.

How do I modify class information?

Click on the name of the class you want to edit on the summary page. Then, you will be able to change the class name, term, class type, institution, time zone, and whether extra messages in students’ results are enabled. Make sure to save changes by clicking the “Save” or “Save and Return to Quick Summary” button.
