retroalimentación
Explanation:
retroalimentación sobre los resultados de la evaluación.

To give feedback (especially constructive feedback) is to convey another person your own impressions and reactions regarding something this other person has done.

Explanation:
I would translate it as "reacciones a los resultados del estudio". 'Survey' can be translated as 'estudio', if it means 'investigation' or 'encuesta' or 'sondeo', if it means 'poll'.

Hope it helps!

Explanation:
I like ffc's suggestion, but I think that by being singular it implies a certain unanimity that may not obtain.

lo siguiente, de diccionarios, aclara mas

feedback
A process in which a system regulates itself by monitoring its own output. That is, it “feeds back” part of its output to itself. Feedback is used to control machines; a heating system, for example, uses a thermostat to monitor and adjust its output. Feedback is also used by the human brain to control various muscles and joints.

• By extension, “feedback” is any response or information about the result of a process. • Feedback is usually a feature of automation. ----------------------------------------
