GoEvaluator - Evaluation System by GoAbroad.com

A user may submit an evaluation through the our white label system, GoEvaluator; an evaluation system that allows organizations to survey participants with customized questions, while building their reviews on GoAbroad.

When a user submits through the GoEvaluator, only the portion in section two will be posted on GoAbroad.com. If a user wishes to not make that portion live on GoAbroad, they simply need to mark as ‘private.’ The remaining questions will be held confidential and only the program provider will be able to access the information.

All reviews that are found to be fair and honest, and contain all required information, will remain posted.
