Survey Research

Survey research is a key component of institutional planning and assessment at Montclair State University. OIR staff participate in survey design and administration, as well as in the analysis of survey data and report preparation. Included among these surveys are some that have an institution-wide perspective,  and others that have department- or program-specific orientations. A current calendar of planned OIR survey activity can be viewed in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format by clicking here (survey calendar).  Copies of all surveys can be found in the OIR Portfolio of Survey Instruments

Please note that all OIR staff and work-study students have completed the "Human Participants Protection Education for Research Teams" online course sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Completion certificates can be viewed here (pdf).
