Workshop: Designing Online Surveys for Undergraduates in Qualtrics

Classes and Workshops

Designing a high-quality survey that meets research needs is key to a successful classroom research project, but so is getting students to take those surveys. This workshop will cover research-based recommendations for both the design and implementation of online surveys. The first hour will focus on survey basics and question design for those somewhat new to survey methodology. After a brief break, the second hour will focus on reducing barriers and perceived “cost” of taking and analyzing the survey for students and researchers using motivational techniques and Qualtrics options.

Workshop: Using VALUE Rubrics for SoTL and Assessment

Classes and Workshops

Assessing students’ written work and teamwork, whether for programmatic assessment purposes or SoTL research, just got easier thanks to the VALUE rubrics, developed by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). These validated rubrics in 16 areas are free to download and have been used in numerous SoTL studies and for classroom, course and programmatic level assessment. The first half of this workshop will introduce the rubrics and demonstrate how VALUE rubrics have been used in published SoTL research, while the second half will focus on best practices for scoring student work with the VALUE rubrics.
