HEDS Alumni Survey
The HEDS Alumni Survey asks alumni about the quality and impact of their undergraduate educational experiences, including cocurricular activities such as internships, study abroad, and community service. The survey also asks alumni to evaluate the impact of their undergraduate education on their postgraduate critical thinking, problem solving, and other learning outcomes. Finally, the survey asks about postgraduate employment, college satisfaction, and college debt. The survey, which should take no more than 15 minutes to complete, is based both on Wabash National Study findings on effective teaching practices and the AAC&U LEAP learning outcomes.
HEDS First Destination Survey
The HEDS First Destination Survey asks graduating seniors and recent college graduates about their primary activities following graduation. Institutions can use the survey’s results to assess employment- and career-related outcomes for recent college graduates and to report to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). The survey may be given to graduating seniors and/or college graduates who complete their undergraduate degrees between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.
HEDS Research Practices Survey
The HEDS Research Practices Survey is a short survey that assesses the extent to which college students can apply their information literacy skills to the practice of scholarly research. It asks students about their research experiences and assesses their skills in finding, evaluating, and citing sources.
HEDS Senior Survey
The HEDS Senior Survey asks graduating college seniors to evaluate teaching practices and institutional conditions they experienced as undergraduates, assess the impact of their college experience on their intellectual growth and development, and describe their plans following graduation. The survey is based both on Wabash National Study findings on effective teaching practices and the Association of American Colleges & Universities’ (AAC&U) AAC&U LEAP learning outcomes. An optional longer version of the survey also includes questions about students’ satisfaction with the quality of their advising, in- and out-of-classroom experiences, campus services and facilities, and campus life.
HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey
The HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey asks students about their perceptions of their campus’ climate for unwanted sexual contact and sexual assault, their perceptions of how their institution responds to sexual assaults, and whether and how often they have experienced unwanted sexual contact or sexual assault. We developed this survey to help institutions meet the requirements of the Clery and the Violence Against Women Acts.
Depending on whether students have experienced unwanted sexual contact or sexual assault, the HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey usually takes less than 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be administered to undergraduate and graduate students 18 years of age and older.
HEDS Diversity and Equity Campus Climate Survey
The HEDS Diversity and Equity Campus Climate Survey asks faculty, staff, and students about their attitudes towards and experiences with diversity, inclusiveness, and equity at their institution. This is a new survey for HEDS. You can administer the survey in spring 2018. We will post more information soon.
HEDS Faculty/Staff Survey of Campus Climate for Sexual Assault
The HEDS Faculty/Staff Survey of Campus Climate for Sexual Assault asks faculty and staff about their perceptions of the institution’s climate for unwanted sexual contact and sexual assault, their perceptions of how the institution addresses and responds to sexual assault, their knowledge of campus policies related to unwanted sexual contact and sexual assault, and their experiences with unwanted sexual contact. This is the first year that HEDS is administering this survey. You can administer the survey in fall 2017. We will post more information soon.
