- Is the ESCI survey anonymous?
Yes, all ESCI surveys are anonymous. In the paper version, there is no identifying information recorded on the Scantron form. In the online version, the online survey system is completely independent of the system that stores and processes the responses for a given quarter. The intermediate system exists to allow us to know in a given quarter, which courses you are enrolled in, and of those, which ones require an end of quarter evaluation. Once you have submitted a response, there is no way to connect your identifying information to a particular response. In addition, after the raw response data has been imported into the processing system, the intermediate database is scrubbed of all data in preparation for the following quarter.
- How much time do I have to complete the questionnaire?
You will have one hour from the time you load an ESCI questionnaire page until the system times out your session.
- I completed my assigned surveys but Gauchospace says I still have surveys to complete?!
Gauchospace periodically checks the Esci website for a list of users who have yet to complete their surveys. This check is performed periodically throughtout a day. It may take a few hours for your Gauchospace dashboard notification to disappear after completing your Esci surveys.

- I disagree with a Surveys' wording, phrasing or bias -- whom can I notify?
You may contact the ESCI HelpDesk through this website. We at Instructional Development are not the sole creators of a Surveys' questions; your Department provides the list of questions they request you supply responses to. You should also contact with your Department on issues you have regarding any questions' verbiage.
- I am a Ucsb Extension student enrolled in a course, can I use this system?
At this time you will likely not be able to access the Esci Survey system. Due to technical difficulties we are attempting to remedy only regular students can access the system at this time. It's recommended you submit a help request on this website and request a paper survey for your course if you are unable to login due to being an Extension enrolled student.
System is Closed for Student Submissions.
