Gauging the overall student experience at the iSchool through student-run surveys and data collection
You’ve Spoken: The Virtual iSchool Experience
See the results of our survey below
The Survey Committee works to gauge the overall student experience at the iSchool through student-run surveys and data collection.
The data generated helps MISC understand the focus of its students’ needs. The Committee’s main initiative is the MISC Student Experience Survey, which gauges MISC’s performance as well as overall student satisfaction in the Faculty of Information. The Co-Chairs are responsible for presenting the data in a timely manner after the survey has been conducted and publishing a summary of the data online. The Committee also works with other Council Members as needed to take other surveys of the student body.
