Abstract There is a limited number of published research about system architectures that try to keep student responses anonymous. A review of literature shows that while there has been a significant level of success in this area, the ultimate goal has not been reached. This abstract presentation covers the architecture of a system that keeps student identity and their responses completely anonymous. Different databases are incorporated for student authentication, survey document, and student responses to ensure anonymity of students and their responses. The system has been in production for several years and has demonstrated its ability for keeping the information anonymous during all these years.
