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.
