Institutional Research Committee Goals and Progress Report Form
Committee Chair: Bob Lewis
¨ Goals Report
x Progress Report
Strategic Planning Goals: (Please highlight committee goals related to the advocacy of SIOP’s Strategic Planning Goals)
- Maximize the value to SIOP of the surveys (salary, career, member practice, etc.) by defining how the data are archived such that they can be reliably retrieved and mined for insights.
Action: Determine how and when surveys have been used in the past and the manner in which they’ve been archived. Define any changes needed and ensure a standing body in SIOP maintains responsibility for them.
Progress October, 2008: No progress on this item; will be discussed and action items assigned at committee conference call on 10/16/08.
Progress: Collected info from other committee members and built calendar into intro for draft guidance.
- Guide SIOP interactions with third party researchers who wish to use SIOP data or collect data from SIOP members.
Action: Develop the principles by which SIOP permits the membership to be surveyed or accessed as participants in research studies. Ensure a standing body at SIOP reviews research requests.
Progress: Draft guidance created and is currently being edited by committee members covering the use and archiving of SIOP data and the avenues researchers have for collecting data from SIOP members.
Once the committee has completed editing we plan to ask for input from several SIOP Portfolio Officers.
Institutional Research Committee goals support SIOP’s third and fourth strategic planning goal by ensuring that key streams of data regarding SIOP members are available for research as appropriate and data are used to ensure SIOP programs and support are valued by members.
