Survey Planning Form for Student Life Assessment

The assessment committee developed this form to evaluate the extent of a given survey’s assessment and to limit survey fatigue by managing distribution schedules.

All departments in Student Life should complete this form for any survey that will be distributed via email to a population at Lewis & Clark of at least 15 students. The form should be submitted no less than 7 days in advance of the planned distribution of the survey.
