Survey Support

Institutional Research is happy to assist GRCC administration and faculty with constructing, administering, and analyzing surveys.

Guidelines for surveys

  • This process is intended for GRCC faculty and staff only. Requests from those external to GRCC must be reviewed through the Institutional Review board. Requests from GRCC students will not be considered.  
  • The content of all surveys must be approved by the Director of Institutional Research and may require additional approvals of college leadership.
  • We recommend that survey requests be submitted at least 60 days before planned administration to allow for subsequent efforts to be completed in time.
  • Surveys must be used to improve practices at GRCC, most notably student success.
  • Survey results will not be used or reported as partial fulfillment of degree requirements for any non-GRCC class or program, conference, or journal article.
  • Surveys that collect data which inform policies and practices related to those goals within the college Strategic Plan will take precedence.
  • Established college-wide surveys related to GRCC Ends and Indicators will take precedence including student satisfaction surveys, student engagement surveys, and campus climate surveys.
  • Only aggregated data will be provided to the researcher (no individual student data). Individual student data may only be collected in order to award incentives.
  • Survey incentives, if appropriate, must follow established guidelines set by the Provost and the Purchasing Policy.   
  • All surveys will be administered using Class Climate.
  • The above guidelines cover all surveys intended to be completed regardless of format (i.e. paper/pencil, electronic, mailed, posted to social media).
