Survey Administrations

The Wellbeing Assessment is regularly administered as an online survey at universities across the country. If you are interested in having your institution participate and want more information, read on to learn more about the survey and how to get involved.

“We presented data to our staff today, and they were very excited about what it means for our programming!” Becky Starkenburg, Vice President for Student Life, Trinity Christian College

Who is surveyed?

Undergraduate students at 4-year colleges and universities are invited to take the survey.  The questions (or “items”) are tailored toward traditionally aged (18-24), full-time enrolled undergraduate students. 

What kinds of questions are asked?

In addition to demographics and background information, students who take the survey are asked about wellbeing pathways and outcomes for each of the Wellbeing Dimensions and other important components and correlates of wellbeing.

How is the survey administered?

The Wellbeing Assessment team at Wake Forest University partners with colleges and universities across the country to administer the survey to undergraduate students at those schools.  The survey is administered online and, depending on your selected number of add-ons, takes about 20-25 minutes to complete.

What do participating schools receive?

For regular administrations, we offer two service levels for participating schools: Wellbeing Assessment Core and Wellbeing Assessment Plus.

Schools participating at the Core level receive the online survey with 5 core Wellbeing Assessment modules, and their students’ response data in the form of a raw data file and a PDF descriptive summary report.

Schools participating at the Plus level receive these as well as:

  • Customization of the survey through the addition of modules and custom questions
  • Full-Service Distribution of the survey
  • Online Interactive Data Report offering the ability to look at student sub-group responses, comparison peer group report, and national data report
  • Two registrations for attendance at our Summer Learning Collaborative

For complete details, see our comparison of Core and Plus packages.

How much does it cost?

Participation at the Core level is offered at no cost, thanks to generous grant funding.

The cost for Plus services is $2800.
