DATA SHARING TEMPLATES
RNL has developed customizable Infographic PDFs, PowerPoint templates, and Executive Summary Word documents which you can use to share your data on campus. It is important to communicate with your leadership, faculty, staff and students about the results and these documents provide easy to use formats to do that. The data sharing documents help you to:
- Be transparent with the data you are gathering at your institution
- Share a high-level introduction to your satisfaction survey results
- Organize the data in a way that will make sense to people without overwhelming them
- Start conversations on ways to improve the student experience
- Be accountable for improving student satisfaction in the future
