Office of Institutional Effectiveness

Conducting A Survey

All surveys – whether purchased from an outside vendor, required from an outside institution or agency, or internally developed – must be submitted to the Office of Institutional Effectiveness for review before administration.

  • Provide information for policy- and decision-making
  • Assess program outcomes
  • Respond to program/institutional accreditation
  • Evaluate and improve college programs and services

While most surveys originate in the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, other administrative and academic departments may initiate surveys for the above mentioned purposes. OIE is willing to assist in drafting the survey.

In some cases, the OIE will forward the request to the Institutional Review Board for review and final approval. After the survey is completed, a copy of the results must be sent to the OIE. Please submit your survey information through the data and analysis request form.
