Improving CES Response Rate

November 22, 2023

CES has had a lower response rate post-pandemic (25% in Spring 2023, and 23% in Summer 2023) than our pre-pandemic rate of 45% (Fall 2019). Improving response rate is important to ensure the responses represent and include diverse student demographics, provide insightful feedback to instructors, and increase the validity of the surveys. 

In Fall 2023, the Learning Experience Assessment and Planning (LEAP) team is implementing the following strategies to increase response rate, in collaboration with participating departments and instructors:

Using a logistic regression analysis model, we will measure the impact of these different strategies in improving student response rate. As part of this analysis, we will also consider how the TSSU strike impacted student response rate.
