Description

Sakai's Multi-Institutional Survey Initiative (MISI) is an endeavor between institutions using Sakai to ask similar questions of instructors and students in order to be able to compare and contrast similarities and differences between institutions as well as provide feedback to improve Sakai development in the future.

The figures and graphs on this webpage are selected results from the surveys conducted by 15 institutions who participated in MISI in 2010.


Online Survey Methodology

All 15 participating institutions administered their own online survey in March-May, 2010. Some institutions chose to offer incentives (e.g., a drawing for a free iPod). The average availability window for the online surveys was 23 days (min: 7 days, max: 36 days).

A "core" set of survey questions was agreed to by participating institutions. Each institution could add to these questions and could also choose to not ask all of the core items. Click to see the core items for instructors and students.
