Latest update about the GQ Survey

This is a message from Sara Kim, Ph.D., associate dean for Educational Quality Improvement: Wow, you helped raise the AAMC Graduation Questionnaire response rate by 13 percent over the past week (See the graph below)!  We are now 33 percent and right at the national response rate.

Here is the breaking news: Montana’s response rate jumped by more than 30 percentage points and now exceeds 60 percent (61 percent vs. 29 percent) and Wyoming has also showed an impressive increase (up 19 percentage points, 50 percent vs. 31 percent).

I thank Seattle and Spokane students who helped raise the response rates by more than 10 percentage points (27 percent vs. 15 percent, 29 percent vs. 15 percent, respectively), followed by a 10 percentage points increase by Idaho students (32 percent vs. 22% percent. Alaska remains the same at 36 percent, which is a strong start.

We are so appreciative of your time and input. Below are the incentives we are offering (please save the AAMC receipt). I will communicate in the next couple of weeks about the End-of-Explore & Focus Phase survey we plan to administer with additional incentives.

  • 1 Amazon Kindle ($100 worth)
  • 2 Amazon Fire Tablets ($60)
  • 3 Portable Chargers ($50)
