Institutional survey schedule

The Office of Institutional Research maintains a schedule of major surveys that are scheduled for future deployment. If you are planning to conduct an institution-wide survey, please consult this schedule so that you can most effectively plan the timing of your survey. If multiple surveys are being distributed to the same population at the same time, the response rate will typically be lower for all surveys. 

Please note that the survey schedule is a work in progress. If you have any surveys planned that we can add to the schedule, or any changes to the existing schedule, please contact Leah Walsh

Survey policies and procedures

There are no strict policies regulating the use of surveys at Daemen University. However, for some general recommendations about survey use and deployment, please reference the Survey Guidelines document. 

For anyone who is relatively new to the survey process, we have created the Survey Development Guide to help lead you through some basic steps in survey creation and deployment. 

National Survey of Student Engagement

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a nationally normed survey which measures student engagement participation in academic and co-curricular behaviors. Daemen University participates in the NSSE survey every three years, most recently in spring 2022.

Review an executive summary of results from the 2019 administration of the survey, provided by the NSSE organization.
