SFCC employees who want to administer a survey of students or employees should ask the following questions:

  • Do you have approval from your vice president or the president to conduct a survey?
  • Is the survey already built, or do you need to have it built? If you need it built, open an ITS SNOW ticket to have the survey created.
  • Is the survey campuswide or department-specific?
    • If it’s campuswide, contact our office to have the survey placed on the survey schedule. We reserve the right to schedule your survey so it doesn’t compete with already-scheduled surveys.
    • If it’s campuswide, open a ticket with Marketing and Communications to have the survey disseminated.
    • If it’s department-specific, contact Testing Services.

Note: Surveys take time! Plan early and wisely.
