Institutional questionnaires and surveys

Purpose

The purpose of this Policy is to ensure that questionnaires requiring data for the entire University are designed, administered, analyzed, and reported in a coordinated, methodologically sound and strategic manner.

Policy

To ensure consistency and accuracy in the reporting of data to external agencies and to other college and universities, all questionnaires requiring data for the entire University must be coordinated with the Office of Institutional Research and Planning and Assessment. This office will consider whether the data requested is readily available and whether the information should be released to the inquiring agent. Data requests or questionnaires relating primarily to a unit, but that also require all-University data, should be cleared with the Office of Institutional Research and Planning and Assessment. If this office does not possess the necessary data, referral to the appropriate office or person will be made.
