The Office of Institutional Research (IR) conducts a variety of survey analyses to
support strategic planning efforts at Daytona State College (DSC). This includes participating
in national surveys to publish college data to aid informed decision making among
students and parents, as well as supporting College initiatives by providing survey
design and administration assistance to internal researchers (DSC faculty and staff).
Please note: external researchers, such as doctoral studies, are not eligible for
these services and should contact the DSC Institutional Review Board (IRB) for more information.
IR coordinates with the Daytona State College Institutional Review Board (IRB) to maintain research compliance. An IRB is a federal requirement covering all types of research involving human subjects. Before IR can begin, the researcher must develop the questions and applicable result descriptions for their survey and send with a completed IRB form to Dr. Pearl Galano, IRB Chair. Please visit the IRB website for more details.
Once an official IRB approval letter has been received, IR will coordinate with the researcher to build the survey within the online survey management platform, Qualtrics. For questions regarding survey requests, please contact Dr. Andrea Gibson at firstname.lastname@example.org or extension 3337.
As survey results become available, IR will analyze and develop presentation material to be published. Please check back for the most current survey results. Please note: this applies to large-scale routine surveys as these results offer the most impact to the College. Internal researchers are encouraged to coordinate with IR regarding the results of their survey projects.
