Essential Skills in Instruction Survey

An electronic survey, one component of SkillPlan’s Essential Skills in Instruction initiative, was designed to examine the usage patterns of work-related materials from the practitioner point of view. The draft survey was reviewed by a national Advisory Committee and piloted with assistance from researcher, Theresa Kline, PhD, University of Calgary.

The survey was distributed using Instant Survey on May 1st, 2008 to 812 email addresses. A total of 632 email addresses were valid and these individuals were invited to respond. Of these, 125 fully completed the survey (20% response rate) and an additional 13 partially completed the survey by May 31st when the survey access website was closed. All responses are included in the results.
