1. What is your job title?
2. Briefly, how would you describe your role in terms of your place in your institution?
Based in a planning and performance unit, I oversee a range of survey related activities. My unit looks after all the key surveys from internal unit/teaching evaluations to national benchmarking-oriented survey projects such as QILT, ISB, or those conducted with UA.
We assist people with advice on survey design, methodology, reporting and interpretation, and will often conduct survey work on their behalf. As owners of the survey policy, we have a central role in coordinating the core surveys along with the more ad-hoc survey requests, and seek to keep a level of control over the extent to which students (and to some extent staff) are being asked to complete questionnaires.
