Registration is open for all HEDS Surveys

Registration for the 2014–2015 administration of the HEDS Alumni Survey, HEDS Research Practices Survey, HEDS Senior Survey, and HEDS Teaching Quality Survey is open. Both HEDS member institutons and institutions not in HEDS may participate in HEDS surveys. The HEDS Teaching Quality Survey is new this summer. It looks at components of high-quality teaching, such as faculty interest in teaching and student development as well as teaching clarity and organization. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and can be administered to students in any class year. Administration for this survey takes place in the fall. Find out more about all of the HEDS surveys and upcoming administrations.
