Dear Mentors of STEM Graduate Research Trainees,
We are testing a new learning assessment designed to evaluate mentored research experiences. We would appreciate your help in validating this survey. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and assesses learning gains from your graduate trainee’s most recent research experience (consider the last 1-2 semesters of their research).
The survey is anonymous and all answers will be kept confidential. They will not be shared with research program directors or graduate trainees at your institution. The responses will simply be used to validate the instrument.
This survey validation project is part of a larger research project funded by the National Institutes of Health (U54 GM119023) and approved by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Institutional Review Board (protocol #2017-0026). If you have any questions, please contact us at the email addresses listed below.
