Assessment Calendar

When you choose to conduct a survey the date your choose can be as important as the questions being asked. To help ensure Missouri State University Student Affairs staff have the greatest chance of getting the most viable information from their survey and in an effort to reduce survey fatigue for our students, the Planning and Assessment Team has developed a calendar of Student Affairs departmental surveys intended to reach 500 or more students.
Current and future semester calendars are updated on an on-going basis as information about and participation in various surveys are determined.
