4 — Your Data Reports Package

When you complete the survey process and administrative requirements, we will send you:

  • a comprehensive institutional report — frequency distribution for every survey question by gender and for all subjects
  • your institutional executive summary — highlights of your results

When the survey period has ended, we will send you:

  • the aggregate reference group report and reference group executive summary for your survey period — so you can compare your data to the national sample

The average turnaround time for the return of your institutional results is only six weeks or less once your survey has closed.
