Long Island University has partnered with Campus Labs to utilize their product Baseline for the design and delivery of surveys to students, faculty, or staff. University faculty and staff have access to an online tool called CampusLabs Baseline (formerly known as StudentVoice). This tool allows the creation and posting of surveys connected to professional University work.
The power of this tool is with its support. CampusLabs Baseline provides four types of support for users.
- CampusLabs has written and video information about general methodological questions at their online support site. Are you new to CampusLabs and don’t know what you have to do to get a project started? Videos walk you through the procedures. Want to know more about the pros and cons of utilizing a mass mailing vs. posting a generic url for potential survey respondents? CampusLabs has a webpage on that. Do you need a method for selecting a drawing winner from among your respondents? CampusLabs offers quick and easy directions that you can follow to randomly select someone. There is much more information like this, and even full webinar training sessions, on their support site.
- There is a CampusLabs Specialist in Buffalo assigned to do one-on-one survey development support with LIU survey users – that Specialist is automatically notified when a user initiates a new survey project, and they look over your instrument to see what expertise they might offer in regard to wording, item format, question order, etc.
- CampusLabs Baseline offers a number of tools to support your projects, including a sample size calculator, immediate and ongoing frequency/count distributions with graphical analysis, and cross-tab analysis. Both reports and raw data may be exported in Excel.
- The Baseline tool connects users to other CampusLabs users in a community that shares best ideas and examples.
