Pillars of Success
- Improve student response rates for end of course surveys
- Streamline the process - sending survey links, data reporting, etc.
- Assemble a taskforce to review the current survey process, the survey (e.g. relevancy of questions, mobile compatibility, survey length, survey invitation to students, etc.) and research best practices to identify suggestions for improvement which will be presented to Shared Governance Council and Cabinet.
- Provide an opportunity for impacted stakeholders (e.g. students, faculty, academic assistants, etc.) who are not on the taskforce to provide input using surveys, focus groups, or other methods to collect feedback.
- Seek recommendations from faculty in programs that receive high response rates to the surveys for ideas on how to encourage student participation.
- Discuss the Higher Learning Commission’s regular and substantive interaction expectations and determine if question(s) that directly support this need to be incorporated into the survey.
- Determine a recommended timeline for survey email invitations and survey reminders to be sent to students.
Providing recommendations on the survey questions, survey length, methods of deployment and how to involve faculty so they can encourage students to take the survey.
