1 IEEE All Society Research Project: 2003 IEEE Education Society Research coordinated by IEEE Research Corporate Strategy and Communications

2 Overview of Project

3 l In February 2003, Society presidents endorsed a research project that would, for the first time, survey all IEEE Societies. This project was named, “IEEE All Society Research Project.” l The project was coordinated by Elena Gerstmann, Director, IEEE Research. l Each Society appointed a point of contact (poc) to work on this project. l The Socpoc team, via , oversaw the processes. This team included one person from each Society, a staff member from RAD, a staff member from TAD, and the two-person IEEE Research staff.

4 Goals l The goals of this project were to provide each Society with membership information in order to: l Plan for the future l Measure membership satisfaction with each Society and IEEE l Develop strategies for membership growth & retention l Assess the value and importance of existing programs and services (publications, conferences, websites, etc.) and of membership, in general l Highlight “hot” content areas l Determine membership demographics (employment status, industry, years of professional experience, etc.)

5 Methodology - Questionnaire l Questionnaire development l The Socpoc team came to a consensus on the format and wording of a template questionnaire. l This template questionnaire provided a framework for each Society’s questionnaire. l The template contained both standard questions that were the same for all Societies and questions that could be customized by each Society. l Each Society representative customized the questionnaire for his or her Society.

6 Methodology – Sample l Sample l The population of members that could have been selected for participation were Higher grade Society members (Associates, Fellows, Members, Senior Members; no Life members or Students) with an address on file (approximately 88% of IEEE members have an address on file) l 1,200 members were randomly selected per Society l A sampling plan was developed that assured that each member would only receive one questionnaire regardless of how many Society memberships she or he holds. l Comparisons between the randomly drawn sample and the Society populations were made to ensure representative samples

7 Methodology – Data Collection l Data collection began in early June ) Society Presidents had an option of sending an message to the sample informing them of the survey 2) Elena Gerstmann, Director, IEEE Research, sent an invitation to each sample explaining the project along with the URL to the Society’s web survey 3) Approximately 14 days after the initial message was sent, a reminder was sent. This message thanked those who had already completed the survey and encouraged those who hadn’t completed it to do so. l An additional sample of 1,800 IEEE non-Society members received a similar survey

8 Response Rate for IEEE Education Society l A total of 436 IEEE Education Society members responded to the questionnaire l Estimating that 1,100 invitations were delivered, the response rate was 40% l Assuming these responses constitute a representative sample because the sample was randomly drawn and was representative of the population of IEEE Education Society members with addresses l the margin-of-error is within ±4.3% with a 95% degree of confidence
