Program Description

Assessment is imperative in today’s society. There is an expectation from accrediting organizations, vice presidents, students, and parents that decisions be based on data. This session will focus on one of the most popular forms of assessment—surveys. Presenters will present practical tips for creating surveys, selecting participants for surveys,  increasing response rates on surveys, using and summarizing the data gathered from surveys, and reporting survey data back to key stakeholders.
