MS1 Class Information – April 21, 2022

Here’s more encouragement to take the MS1 survey

You could win up to a $50 item

A message from Sara Kim, Associate Dean for Educational Quality Improvement: Thank you to all of you who completed the survey and helped raise the survey response rate to 51.3 percent, a 19-percentage point jump! This is probably the single biggest increase I have seen over a one-week period.

At the regional campus level, Wyoming is leading the way with 90 percent of the class completing the survey. This is an increase of 80 percent in a week. Outstanding! Other campuses are also making big strides: Montana, 53.3 percent vs. 40 percent last week, Spokane, 51.7 percent vs. 20 percent, Idaho, 50 percent vs. 28.9 percent, Seattle, 46.9 percent (last week’s rate had to be adjusted), and Alaska, 38.9 percent vs. 5.6 percent.

This means many students at every campus took the time to complete the survey. Thank you so much.

The survey link is emailed to you directly from Please know we only use your email addresses for tracking survey completion; your responses are anonymous.

Thank you for your help with reaching a response rate of 80 percent.
