Survey Request


Below is a survey request that has been approved by Geri Anderson and Julie Ouska.  Note that your responses in the survey will be anonymous, but in participating, you can elect to enter a raffle drawing for a Kindle Fire.  I know you are all busy, but if you have about 15 minutes to do the survey, I know your feedback and efforts would be appreciated.

Thanks everyone,

Dear Instructors and Academic Administrators,

You are invited to participate in a research study designed to solicit perceptions from faculty and academic leaders within the Colorado Community College System (CCCS).  This study is part of a dissertation project at the University of Denver entitled: Faculty Engagement with Learning Outcomes Assessment: A Study of Public Two-Year Colleges in Colorado, and is conducted by Jennifer L. Williams, PhD candidate.  Jennifer can be reached at jenwilli@du.edu or 720-937-0376.  This project is supervised by Dissertation Chair Dr. Cheryl Lovell, Morgridge College of Education, University of Denver, Denver, CO 80208, 303-871-2479, cdlovell@du.edu .

Participation in this study should take about 15-20 minutes of your time.  Participation will involve responding to seven demographic questions and 31 questions about faculty engagement with student learning outcomes assessment.  Additionally, 27 items from a separate research study are included that have different scales and may seem unrelated to the initial research questions presented.  However, these items are essential to estimating the survey instrument’s validity, thus your responses to these questions are very important as well. 

Your responses will be anonymous, which means that no one will be able to connect your identity to the information you provide.  You may, however, elect to enter a raffle drawing for a brand new 2012 Kindle Fire HD electronic tablet (http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-Fire-HD/dp/B0083PWAPW) by entering your email address or telephone number into a secured comment box at the end of the survey.  This response selection is not used for identification purposes and will only be used to contact the winner of the raffle.  You will be asked at the beginning of the survey if you consent to participate in this project.

This survey will be open from October 22 - November 18, 2012.

Thank you for your participation!
