After about seven years with Soundrocket, the Genomes2People Research Program has re-upped and expanded the partnership with the help of a new NIH grant for its PeopleSeq Consortium study.
From the LaunchPad
Welcome to The Launchpad, SoundRocket’s blog, where we share our insights and musings on the science of doing science (well), #soundscience.
As preparations have begun for another implementation of the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL), and with nearly 60 schools enrolled for the MSL2018 implementation (a record enrollment for the study at this stage of early recruitment), study Principal Investigator (PI) Dr. John P. Dugan has announced his move to The Aspen Institute as their Director of Program Quality, Design, & Assessment.
A collaborative partnership between the University of Michigan and SoundRocket now offers colleges and universities across the nation affordable access to a national campus climate survey measuring sexual assault. Piloted at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor during the Winter 2015 term, the NCCS successfully measured what was previously thought of as unattainable in college student surveys. The survey achieved a final response rate of approximately 67%, demonstrating how a comprehensive and responsive survey design can be implemented to achieve a more balanced and representative collection of responses.
Ready to Launch a Survey? It’s just a press of a button, right?
How I wish that were the case! As with any science, care must be taken to ensure there is a consistent application. Bias introduced by inconsistencies in the study implementation is not desirable. Survey researchers can minimize such bias by…
