IU EAST USER SATISFACTION SURVEY

Instructions:

Please fill out each question as completely as possible by circling your choice (or choices) for each question. Most of the questions ask for your level of satisfaction for a given service based on a five-point scale. The scale represents a spectrum: 1 signifies that you are not at all satisfied with a service, and 5 means you are very satisfied. If you are not familiar enough with a particular service to make an evaluation, please circle 7 for cannot evaluate this service. If you have no knowledge of the service in question, please circle 8 for never heard of service rather than not answering the question.
