7. How were the questions developed?

The consultant has administered climate assessments to more than 130 institutions across the nation and developed a repository of tested questions. To assist in contextualizing the survey for Kent State University, and to capitalize on the many assessment efforts already undertaken, the CSSC was formed and consists of faculty, staff and student representatives from various constituent groups at Kent State. The committee is responsible for developing the survey questions. The team will review selected survey questions from the consultant’s tested collection, and will also include Kent State-specific questions, which will be informed by the focus group results.
