1997 UITS IUPUI User Survey - Survey Methodology

The UITS IUPUI User Survey is administered each year by the IUPUI Office of Information Management and Institutional Research. Surveys were sent to randomly selected people at Indiana University, Purdue University, Indianapolis in each of the following categories: graduate students, professional degree students, and undergraduate students. The questions on the survey are primarily Likert opinion scales (1-5 rating scales with 5 always being the most favorable rating). For questions asking opinions of services, the results shown include the percentage of people who use the service (which we have taken to be the percentage of people who expressed an opinion about it), the average opinion score, and the percentage of people who were satisfied with the service (graded it as a 3 or better).

Unless otherwise indicated, the results shown are extrapolated to estimate the average response of the entire IUPUI community.

Please note: Only students were sampled for the 1997 UITS IUPUI Survey.
