The 2015–2016 GSQ Total School Profile provides insights into student educational experiences, personal formation, and vocational goals that can help us evaluate and improve our work as theological educators.
The Entering Student Questionnaire (ESQ), Graduating Student Questionnaire (GSQ), and Alumni/ae Questionnaire (AQ) track demographics, levels of debt, motivations for entering seminary, satisfaction with the effectiveness of the education received, and professional plans and experiences. They are supported by webinars, an annual workshop, and a listserv (a communication space for coordinators).
Resources for using the questionnaires includes a FAQ sheet, sample questionnaires, and resources for using the Qs in educational and institutional assessment.
Web tutorials help school coordinators set up, manage, and submit batches of electronic surveys. Also included is a tutorial that helps students complete the questionnaire online.
Total School Profile reports summarize the entering and graduating student data from participating schools.
