Texas State University

Texas State University - San Marcos has approximately 1,300 faculty and 27,000 students.

Spring 2006 Survey:
We had a pilot group (45 individuals) of faculty and staff using Sakai 2.1.

Near the end of the semester, pilot group members were sent an email asking them to join the Support staff and other team members for a debrief session, during which we would provide lunch and the opportunity to take the online survey. We even took lunch orders!

Twelve of the 45 came to the debrief, which was offered on two days from 11AM-2PM.

The survey was created online in the Tests and Quizzes tool in the Support site.
There were 31 questions which took on average 15-20 minutes to complete.

Students in pilot group classes were also surveyed. We asked the instructor's permission to give the survey at the start of a class period in late April, toward the end of the semester.

We were able to survey 798 out of approximately 4000 students that were using Sakai for at least one of their classes.

The student survey consisting of 21 questions was provided on paper with a Scantron sheet and took approximately 5-7 minutes to complete.

All the questions we used are in the Sakai question bank.
