Re: Should “technology” be included in the Committee Charge?

"Use the most innovative technology available that fits the task" ? One rarely uses the most innovative technology available to establish a model. In fact, one generally would use the most well established platform since the most innovative typically tend to be less proven, and therefore lack credi...

Re: Survey Design

Hello everyone, Sorry I took so long to respond to this. Before we consider whether or not to implement what Jacob is recommending regarding limiting the number of questions or increasing our population reach based on the formula he is proposing, I think we need to step back and consider why the com...

Re: Should “technology” be included in the Committee Charge?

I wish the committee address this issue since we do live in a constantly evolving technological environment... This was not the principle under which this committee was proposed for. In my opinion, this is a charge for a different committee all together, because the challenges of technological chan...

Re: Should “technology” be included in the Committee Charge?

the committee is setting its mandate to be broader and broader to the point where it is becoming unfocused. I agree with you, Bill. I think the issue of technology (irrespective of definition) is not something we should address. In fact, I personally believe that it is divergent from the initial in...

Should “technology” be included in the Committee Charge?

Hello everyone, During the December 19th Committee Members meeting, it was determined the Committee needs to decide to what degree (if at all) we include “Technology” in the Committee’s objectives via a majority vote among the Committee Members and Advisory Council. This is important for finalizing ...

Re: Survey Design

Hello everyone, Thanks for your detailed feedback on the survey. Martin, I believe we had a definition for ‘credible practice of M&S’ prior to the initial release, but the upfront text was getting too much, so we eliminated it. But let's wee what we can do about making the definition more succinct. ...

Re: Survey Design

Hi Pras and Tina, Thanks for your thoughtful feedback. You both bring up some really excellent points. This is exactly the kind of feedback needed to help design a survey that will help the Committee acquire the data needed to accomplish the Committee's goal. I will respond to each of your points wh...

Re: Survey Design

then I might suggest randomizing the order in which they appear. Although google form does not have a way of randomizing the survey, Jacob's idea about creating multiple versions gave me an idea. But it will take some web scripting. Basically, if we were to create several different versions of the ...

Re: Survey Design

Hey Joy, Thought I'd respond since Jacob had turned the survey over to me a while ago and I've been working on refining it for a while now. To answer your first question, no, there is currently no way of preventing people from filling out the survey more than once. I'm not sure how we can do that wi...
