Survey assistanceSaturday, May 28, 2016
Illinois Agriculture Teachers,
In the next few days, an email about a survey concerning SAEs should appear in your inbox. We ask you to take the time to complete this survey to assist in a research project that Jason Perry and I are conducting.
We are asking your help in determining the relationship between Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) and career choice. Your participation in this study consists of completing an online survey, which should take about three minutes per student that meets the criteria. Feel free to ask questions before you decide whether or not to participate. The questions in this survey concern students’ post-high school career plans, students’ FFA proficiency area, and students’ level of achievement with SAE.
The results of this survey will benefit teachers by providing insight into the value of SAE to students’ career selection. It may also prove valuable when trying to justify extra days for SAE visits to school boards and administrators.
Your responses to this survey will be kept completely confidential and will only be released as summary data in which no individual answer could be determined. Therefore, risk of participation is minimal and no greater than that of everyday life. Data collected may be used to compare results with past and future research projects. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. If you choose not to participate or to withdraw from the study at any time, there will be no penalty. You may discontinue participation at any time without penalty or loss of benefits. However, your participation can help in determining the relationship between SAE projects and career selection of high school students.
If you have any questions about the research study, you can reach Dr. Richard Steffen at (309) 438-8084 –email@example.com or Jason Perry at (217) 621-9945 – firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about your rights as a participant in this research, or if you feel you have been placed at risk, you can contact the Research Ethics & Compliance Office at Illinois State University at (309) 438-2529.
