With the increasing number of student surveys on campus, students often become overburdened and experience “survey fatigue.” In order to minimize survey fatigue and maximize the likelihood that students will respond to university surveys, the Surveys and Evaluation team maintains a calendar of large student surveys on campus.
To maximize response rates, departments and offices are encouraged to consult this calendar and avoid administering student surveys at the same time as another university survey. Finals week should also be avoided since students are less likely to respond during this time.
If you would like further guidance on the best time to distribute your survey, please contact the Associate Director of Survey Research. To request that your survey be added to the university survey calendar, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
