Guidelines for the Conduct of CAUL Surveys
Updated 6 August, 2003
The following principles are
used (to varying degrees) in surveying CAUL and responding to such surveys:
For the surveyor:
For the respondents:
Surveys may be conducted by
any CAUL member, or their representative.
Surveys are generally, and preferably,
conducted by email to the CAUL email list, ie email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
(by a list member only)
Include in the subject line
of the email message the subject of the survey, the date and the name of
the institution e.g. BENCHMARKING SURVEY (QUT 22/4/96) It helps if the
subject is typed in upper case.
Nominate a closing date for
responses, preferably not less than two weeks.
Include the responses of the
surveying institution, as a guide to the intention of the questions.
Summarise all responses after
the closing date, and circulate the responses to CAUL (with an electronic
copy to the CAUL Office please).
Send the replies only to the
surveying institution, which is responsible for summarising and reporting
the responses to the rest of CAUL.
Use the email "Reply" facility
wherever possible, to keep the subject and the content of the message intact,
or as a last resort, repeat the subject line from the original message.
Respond by the requested date.
