  • No, it is not possible to alter existing items in the MBA Lifecycle questionnaire templates. However, if you engage the Custom Survey Package, you can add up to 10 open-ended or closed-ended questions to the end of the questionnaire template. Percept Research will assist in designing the questions to fit your program.

    Why can we not add, delete, or modify questions within the questionnaire template?

    We do not allow modification within the questionnaire templates as this would reduce our ability to provide benchmarking and standardized analysis. Additionally, this template-driven approach allows us to provide the surveys at favorable pricing (utilizing economies of scale).

    A single wording change in the template would have a cascade effect not only on the questionnaire design, but also the web instrument development, quality assurance testing, database programming, analysis, and reporting. A single change within the questionnaire template is not cost effective and, in effect, creates an entirely new survey from a process standpoint. Adding questions to the end of the survey allows us to maintain the psychometric integrity of the template as well as conduct data tabulation and analysis in an efficient manner at the pricing plans currently available.

    What if a question in the template doesn't apply to the delivery of my program?

    All of the ratings questions have "Don’t Know / Not Applicable" response option to ensure we don't force an answer for those very rare situations.

    The exception to the rule...

    The MBA Alumni Survey is the exception to adding questions to the end of the questionnaire -- this questionnaire template is intentionally shorter for the inclusion of custom questions. These custom questions can be embedded throughout out questionnaire if needed. The higher set-up fee for the MBA Alumni Survey accommodates for this level of customization.
