From my July 22 meeting with Dr. Allard, some revisions to the survey instrument are warranted.
The relevant files I am working with are these:
The previous notebook entry referencing these materials is online:
As these are works in progress, the documents are archived online on the UT Works Sharepoint Site:
Also as part of the e-mail to open notebook workflow, the documents are available online at:
However I will not be working with these documents further. The working documents will be accessed via Sharepoint.
I have been informed by the technology coordinator for CICS, Cindy Lancaster, that I can use “Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010 program” to interact with draft files that are on Sharepoint, using a traditional “GUI” interface rather than the browser function. This software is not installed on my workstation in CICS; it is also not available on my personal computer. However, it is available in a computer lab I have access to.
In addition, I am aware of a very simple procedural recommendation made to my by Dr. Davis, where I can simply download the files of interest to my computer, then upload to the target folder. This is not my ideal workflow as I would like to minimize my interaction with the files, but in performing the operation for several files I it would seem a reasonable way to minimize the interaction with the files.
Created via e-mail:
It is possible for me to edit these online within sharepoint (after checking out).
I’d like to post the full link here, but the file path includes my e-mail address.
So, when I have access to the sharepoint 2010 software, I will likely move the files to the network analysis folder, and then provide the link.
Some revisions to make:
- Remove the “& constituent fields” component from S. 1 – Role and Work Setting
- Add note that these are very broadly defined
- Masters Candidate / Doctoral Candidate isn’t really accurate. Use student instead to encompass full life cycle
- For “scientist,” what is the difference between “junior” and “senior” scientist?
- For role and work setting, use “what is your job title” and then “where does it best fit.”
- Place the “job title” question last.
- Also include “other”
- In S. II use degree as drop down. (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctorate).
- Allow for the possibility that there are multiple degrees at the same level (e.g., two Masters degrees)
- Include domain as drop-down
- Include year as drop down (thought I think this should be year as box)
- The description needs to be shorter.
- The description states that the survey will take ten minutes.
- Need to be sure that the survey really takes ten minutes (create dummy survey and test with friends)
The survey can be done using either:
1) Survey Monkey
2) UTK Qualtrics Survey Account https://oit.utk.edu/research/websurveys/Pages/default.aspx
I don’t feel like “survey monkey” gives a good impression so I am currently more inclined to use the qualtrics survey account. Besides I can export data in several formats.
