  • UWSC study examines differences in data quality for agree-disagree and construct-specific questions

  • UW Survey Center’s “High Impact Teaching Practices” Mentor UW Undergraduates

    UWSC regularly employs 50 to 100 undergraduates who are trained as phone interviewers, data entry operators, and mail room workers.  UWSC’s preference for promoting from within means that these students have opportunities to apply for regular staff and supervisory positions within UWSC’s field operations, survey management, and technology departments.  Students in all these positions develop a range of skills that will help them when they enter the job market.
