|Graduate and Professional Student Survey|
Welcome Institutional Researchers!
Duke University and MIT have teamed up to produce a Graduate and Professional Student Survey (GPSS) and are inviting all AAU institutions to participate. This survey draws the best questions from both the Rutgers and HEDS surveys as well as adds some other relevant questions into one comprehensive survey. Having as many institutions participate as possible would allow for good graduate/professional comparative data that is not currently available. Duke will be conducting the survey this spring and MIT plans to administer the survey this coming fall. We hope that you will join us.
Institutions interested in participating can do so in either the spring or fall. Distribution of data to AAUDE members would take place through the Data Warehouse. Distribution to non-AAUDE members will be handled differently. For those schools that have participated in the HEDS or Rutgers surveys in the past we will produce a crosswalk to expedite longitudinal analysis and work with MIT's data warehouse to load any existing files, if institutions would like to do.
There are two options for participation. Institutions can administer the survey themselves in which case we can provide the html code, but data layout conformation would be required in order to share data with other schools. A second option would be to have MIT run it for you on the web. MIT has experience doing this and although it is more costly, it alleviates some of the burden to the university. MIT would tailor the survey to meet individual needs, including adding local questions. This is an individual choice.
For more details, please feel free to contact Lydia Snover at MIT or David Jamieson-Drake at Duke. If you are interested in having MIT's Web Survey Service run the survey for you, contact Lydia.
Your participation is very important and greatly appreciated!

NOTE: This is a survey mockup; no answers will be saved. The live survey instrument will allow students to complete part of the survey and return to review, complete or edit their answers while the survey is open.
